Insulin Pen

Using insulin pens with their cartridges can be very convenient. As an alternative to insulin in vial form and syringes, they can give you confidence, or help if you have visual or dexterity impairments. They are less prone to dosage error, though a pen is not accurate when dosage is 3 units or less. They can be a big help if you are new to diabetes and a bit unsure about things. Pens are the predominant insulin delivery system in most of the world, except the United States, where syringes and insulin vials still dominate. See also injecting insulin. Insulin pens come in 2 basic styles: prefilled which you discard after the insulin is used, or refillable. Refillable pens (Like the Novopen Junior ) are much like fountain pens; insulin cartridges are inserted and changed when empty. Disposable pens (like the Levemir FlexPen ) are cheaper but also less accurate -- the plunger mechanism on the disposable pens is a bit flimsy, and can give inaccurate doses by half a unit or so. You can use either type with a syringe, with some precautions as below. As of January 1, 2010, Novo Nordisk discontinued the following cartridges for refillable pens: [7] Novolin® R PenFill® 3 mL cartridges (Re Continue reading >>

    Insulin, whether in a pen or a vial, does not need refrigeration as long as the temperature is between 45-75 degrees (or thereabouts). Airconditioned homes are generally adequate. However, I keep mine in the refrig so I can locate it quickly. BTW, Byetta is the same way, although it is not insulin.
    Google for the brand you are interested in and check out the mfg website.

    I've forgotton to bring my Novorapid insulin to work twice this week. As a result I've had to make dashes home to fetch it which is a 20+ mile round trip. So I was wondering if I can keep a pen needle at work, but how long would it be good for unrefridgerated? There is no where to store it below room temperature at work.

  2. john.t5

    Hi Fudge,
    I was told when first diagnosed I could keep Novorapid at room temp for 4 weeks, I think room temp is considered as 21deg or below. The office I work in is constantly 21deg or above (apparently it's too expensive to use air con??) and I blame this for my insulin going 'bad'.
    Do you inject directly from the fridge? - sounds painful

  3. farmerfudge

    Hi john,
    No I dont inject straight from the fridge (hell no) but I was just wondering how long I could store it safely at the office so that I have some available when I inevitably leave my normal pen at home.
    Cheers Ben

Q What is insulin? » Insulin is a hormone that your body produces to help convert the need insulin either because they don’t produce enough, or their bodies can’t properly use the insulin they do produce.

    I use NovoLog. Unopened vials or pens should be refrigerated but I was advised that I could keep the NovoLog Flexpen I was using at room temp and then to discard it after 28 days. Now, I'm using NovoLog vials to refill my new insulin pump every 3 days. I keep the opened vial in the fridge and take it out so it warms to room temp before refilling my pump reservoir. My pump trainer said that insulin at room temp is less likely to have bubbles in it and you don't want bubbles in your pump tubing. Doryian and I both deal with the Florida heat as I also believe you do, so Doryian's advice to make sure your insulin doesn't get overheated is "right on". Sounds to me like you're doing the right thing! (You also don't want insulin to freeze, but we Floridians seldom have that problem.)

    No and Yes, No you don't need to keep the pen that you are useing in the fridge. Cause you are going to us that pen up with in 30 days or less according to your units that you use a day. And some of us just leave the pen on our tables, or near our other medicines, and our apartments are cool from the air conditioning. Yes any un-opened insulin pens that you are not useing should be kept refrigerated till you need them. Take Care
