Re: [IP] Humalog Allergy?



Phenol is also used a preservative in some insulins as well as M-cresol
which is in the pehnol family. If you would like I can get info on phenol.
I became reactive and then chemically injured by it when I worked in the
hospital.
Let me know if this information on phenol is wanted:)
