RE: [IP] How long do you keep insulin in your pump?

My son uses about 8 units of insulin a day.  We usually change the cartridge every 2 weeks, but we have gone almost a month with the same insulin without seeing too much loss of potency.

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering how much insulin you fill your pumps with and how long
you you that insulin?  I have been changing my insulin cartridge every other
day when I change out my infusion set.  I have heard that you can use the
insulin longer.  Please let me know.
