Re: [IP] Humalog

Dear B,

I was told that Humalog has a shelf live of 1 month outside the frig. 
I was told to carry an extra set and reservoir with me at all times, just in
case I need to change it. (Unexplained high BG's). Therefore I carry my

A few years ago, there was an article in the Forecast magazine about the
insulins. (Of course, it didn't include Humalog.) It said that all insulin

for up to one month. Otherwise, if refrigerated after opening, it would be
good for 3 months. I was also told this at Joslin.
