    I need some opinions.
    When insulin goes bad does it do absolutely nothing? Is it like giving water?
    Are there times when the insulin is bad but it partially works, meaning it takes MUCH more of it to get the proper results?
    Also, what is the appearance of bad insulin? Can insulin look perfectly fine in the vial or pump cartridge and yet be bad?
    Thanks for your help!

    Lantus would turn cloudy - but I have not noticed nay change in Novolog.
