Default Re: Ok to pre-fill syringes?

People have done it at times, especially if they are going on vacation and either have a housesitter or a boarding facility give the injections while they are gone.

I think it's probably better to avoid it and only do it if it's really necessary.

Very important to thoroughly and gently remix the insulin in the syringe before injecting AND to store the syringes vertically with the needle up to avoid having settle in and clog the needle.

Here are some articles on prefilling syringes.
