Default Re: Dr. Peterson on how long vials of NPH can be used

I'm a bit of a cheapskate, but think I'll stay with six weeks for NPH. My current usage would be about 2/3 of a vial and think that might be good. I worry about my rolling / mixing technique with "cloudy" insulin like NPH.

I do remember when we were using Vetsulin, and tried to suck every drop out of the vial in a month due to the higher cost. I would wonder if the last injection was the same as the first due to mixing.
Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9 years.
