    Can you use insulin past 30 days? Are pens more cost efficient? Where to buy insulin?

    I was told to date my insulin vials the first time I use them, and throw them away after 30 days, no matter how much is left. I average 1-2 units of Novalog per meal, so I haven't gone through even half of my first vial, and the first month is almost over. The people at Diabetic Ed said that the insulin will start to break down after that and not be as potent. I'm interested in hearing your responses.
    Also, since pens use smaller containers of insulin, are they more cost efficient? (ie/a vial may cost less per unit, but if I'm throwing half of it away, would a pen be cheaper?)
    And lastly, where do you buy your insulin (mostly those of you without insurance)?

  2. John Galt

    I've used insulin past 30 days before. I've only noticed minor differences in the effectiveness of the dose. That's purely anecdotal though, and I'm not sure that my experience with it is valid for you. I have noticed occasionally that the dose I gave with older insulin was even MORE effective (i.e. caused hypos) than I expected...again, anecdotal and the effect could have been due to many other factors.
    I'd say listen to your doctors, but if you happen to be in a situation where your only option is to use older insulin you probably aren't going to die, but it's not ideal.
    If you can lower your total cost of discarded insulin by switching to a pen, then it sounds like it's worth it to me.
    Don't construe any of this as good advice...I'm not a doctor.

    I'm not an insulin user so this is all acquired and not personal knowledge
    Insulin will begin to break down after 30 days and will be less potent. This may make it work less efficiently or more painful when you inject. You can extend the life of insulin by keeping it refrigerated and just warming it back up when you need to inject so it isn't painful.
    I think pens are more expensive as compared to the same amount of insulin in a vial, however studies have shown that people who use pens end up paying less because pens are more accurate, so they waste less insulin, and easier to use so there are fewer problems with insulin resulting in additional costs.
    I don't buy insulin so I can't answer your last question but I hope that helps!

Why Walmart Insulins Aren’t The Answer To High Insulin Prices

A diabetes advocate contrasts the performance of generic insulins versus the more popular brands. Commentary Some people don’t understand why people with diabetes get upset at the price of insulin. They see insulin for sale at a relatively reasonable price in Walmart and don’t see the problem. What they don’t know is that these Walmart insulins just don’t perform nearly as well as the more expensive insulins, and that gap in performance can have a very negative effect on the health of people with diabetes. There are three insulins available at Walmart for the price of $25 – NPH, Regular, and 70/30 (a mix of the two). NPH was first approved by the FDA in 1950, Regular was approved in 1982, 70/30 in 1989. That means NPH has been around for 66 years, Regular for 33 years, 70/30 for 27 years. Take a moment and think about what healthcare was like in 1950. Now, I’m sure someone is saying, “Well, they must still work if they are still being sold.” And they do, but they don’t work in the same way. These insulins are not interchangeable. If a person with Type 1 diabetes were to switch from a Humalog/Lantus insulin regimen to Regular and NPH, it would drastically alter the Continue reading >>

Why Is Insulin So Expensive In The U.s.?

Dr. Jeremy Greene sees a lot of patients with diabetes that's out of control. In fact, he says, sometimes their blood sugar is "so high that you can't even record the number on their glucometer." Greene, a professor of medicine and history of medicine at Johns Hopkins University, started asking patients at his clinic in Baltimore why they had so much trouble keeping their blood sugar stable. He was shocked by their answer: the high cost of insulin. Greene decided to call some local pharmacies, to ask about low-cost options. He was told no such options existed. "Only then did I realize there is no such thing as generic insulin in the United States in the year 2015," he says. Greene wondered why that was the case. Why was a medicine more than 90 years old so expensive? He started looking into the history of insulin, and has published a paper about his findings in this week's issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The story of insulin, it turns out, starts back in the late 1800s. That's when scientists discovered a link between diabetes and damaged cells in the pancreas — cells that produce insulin. In the early 1920s, researchers in Toronto extracted insulin from cattle panc Continue reading >>

    I posted all this yesterday but it was suggested tht i changed the title I used, so here goes. Also does anyone know if the 25 dollar vials at Wal mart are only 100ml??? If so, it would take me 2 days to go through 50 bucks worth.... Ok, here is my original post, I hope. Thank you for suggesting that I do it this way. I have a very important questions for type 2`s. I am on both Humalog and Lantus. I am pretty sure both are 100% and not mixes. Anyways because of out present financial situation and me not being able to work at all because of being bed ridden and the pain killers I must take. I can`t even go to the bathroom, bathe, etc, everyday functions, I just can`t do them anymore. Haven`t been able to drive now for several years, that was the part that really put me over the edge. I lost all independence, I am now at the mercy of my wife and must rely on her for everything.
    ​Anyways, to get to my question. There is no way in heck, we can afford the copays on my insulin this coming Jan. I had everything covered 100% this year, thanks to 3 more days in the hospital. What do you do???? I only eat once a day, because we can`t afford to do anything else. My wife, I make sure she always has enough for all 3 meals, because she is the one working. I don`t care about myself. I have gone up to 4 days without eating and my dogs will also eat before I do. They are my family, my comfort, my protecters. They know when dad feels real bad and the will surround me on the bed and not let anyone near me. Even though there are 3 of us in the household, our son does not count because he is 22. I have tried to qualify for any king of programs and they all say we make too much because they only base it on 2 people. How do you get help with your insulin???? I go through a pen of Humalog in 5 days, thanks to having 20% of a pancreas left and it is still destroying itself. My lantus lasts about 8 days. Nobody will preform surgery on me to remove what is left of the pancreas because the veins to my spleen were destroyed in the process, so I have this empty space you can see on the CT scans of where my pancreas was and the surgon pointed out some of the spaghetti veins that are everywhere going in and out of my spleen. He told me, I would bleed to death on the table, beacuse the spleen has to come out as well. Plus I have growths on my kidneys, liver, stomach, have to take pills just to have bowel movement, spot and stuff on my intestines, stomach, colon, etc. I think you get the idea.
    Please if anyone has any ideas of what I can do about the insulin, please, please, let me know. Sorry about the book I just wrote. I figured it would all have to come out at sometime. Oh and I have been fighting SSDI for 29 months now. Thank you for reading, Bill

    I think the 100 may refer to concentration, 100U per ml, I think the vials are 10ml, I'm guessing 1,000 U are probable if my info is right.
    you should see a dr to advise on usage. 2 to 3 injections a day seems the norm. for the intermediate action N / NPH for basal
    then you would use the short action R / regular for bolus.
    if you decide to go low carb, you will use less insulin.

    I wish I could offer you some good suggestions, Bill, but I have no personal experience with buying/using insulin....
    However, I've lived for years without insurance, so I've learned to look, look, and look again for things like free clinics and sliding-scale programs at doctor's offices and hospitals, as well as state, county, and city programs that help people who are in financial straits and need assistance with medical (and food) needs.
    You could also call 211 and get a list of referrals for different agencies, organizations, and programs that help people with various needs (mostly stemming from limited finances). Or check it out online:
