[IP] Glucagon shortage

I talked with Lilly yesterday re: on-going shortages of glucagon emergency 
kits.  They have had manufacturing problems, had hoped to be shipping again 
by mid-February, but now have a projected date of June 1.  In the meantime, 
they have very limited supplies available for patients on a case by case 
basis.  If you need a prescription for it filled, have your pharmacist 
call  1-800-545-5979.  Lilly should be able to provide a single kit for 
your use.  If that doesn't work, may want to try to get the similar Novo 
product, marketed as GlucaGen and distributed in the US by Bedford 
Laboratories (Bedford, OH) 1-800-562-4797
