Default Re: Insulin storage...

No matter what insulin we were using, that's where and how it was kept. We used the old Lilly pork Lente at a slower rate of speed because it was U 100 vs U 40 insulin. I could keep a vial of that old Lilly insulin potent for close to 3 months--finally needing to toss it because it was starting to run out of "steam" at that point with about 1/3-1/4 of the vial left. We were always able to use Caninsulin/Vetsulin to the last drop--that kept for about 6 weeks, when it ran out.
