how to store injectable diabetes meds

Patients often ask how to store injectable diabetes meds.

In general, injectable insulin should be refrigerated until it's used for the first time. After that, storage place and times vary.

Insulin vials can stay in the fridge or at room temp once opened. Most people prefer insulin at room temp...it stings less when injected.
