Default Re: Testing after regulation

Expiry dates for insulin are for unopened vials. Once opened, a lot of websites say that insulin can start to lose potency after 28-30 days. So yes it's still effective after the 30 days, just not as effective.
I didn't buy into that before, but now I'm curious, and I'm going to watch my dog's numbers after 30 days.
And if I'm going to increase his dose after a curve, I'll make sure it's with insulin less than 30 days old, just in case.
