The box thst the Humalog comes in says "Keep in a cold place. Avoid freezing"

Inside the package, the leaflet says:
"Humalog should be stored in a refrigerator but not in the freezer. If
refrigeration is not possible, the bgottle of Humalog that you are currently
using can be kept unrefrigerated, up to 28 days, as long as it is kept as
cool as possible (below 860F (300C)) and away from direct heat and light."

Average body temperature is 98.60.

The insulin probably loses some of its potency if left in the pump and tube
too long. It may or may not be a problem, but I'd ratehr avoid it if it is.
