I understand about insulin's sensitivity to heat, but questioned Lilly 
Co. about the sensitivity to light.  They responded that the cresol 
preservative used in insulins was the substance sensitive to light 
and would discolor when exposed to sunlight.  The rep. explained 
that "no one wants to inject a brown insulin" thus the warning.   ;>)
