[IP] Re: News to me


Re: the insulin being stored for long periods of time in plastic cartridges...it is probably something *in the
insulin* that binds to the container, not the other way around (ie: the plastic does not contain a protein.) It's
probably like what happens to breastmilk. You aren't supposed to freeze/store breastmilk in certain types of
containers because the proteins *in the milk* bind to them, rendering them useless.
Just my piddly 2 cents worth. :)

Take care, Kerri
