how to store their injectable diabetes meds
Patients often ask how to store their injectable diabetes meds.
In general, injectable insulin should be refrigerated until it's used for the first time. After that, storage recommendations vary.
Insulin vials can be kept in the fridge or at room temperature after opening...but room temperature insulin stings less when injected. Tell patients they can keep most opened insulin vials for about four weeks...and keep Levemir for six weeks.
