RE: [IP] Power failure & insulin



I think the insulin will be okay as power loss was temporary and it's not as
if it got frozen or half-baked. Remember, it's supposed to be good at room
temperature for 28 days, according to the manufacturers.

I had 3 unopened bottles of Novolog in the butter compartment of the fridge
when the power went off.  I was in the least fortunate part of NYC and so I
suspect the insulin was close to room temperature for at least 12, maybe 24
hours. Should I stop worrying? Thanks.
