... Didn't realise wasn't supposed to refrigerate after first pen use. Its my first time using insulin. Worried about whether I've ruined solution and if its safe or whether it won't work.
Hi Spacebod. The Lantus is fine. When we take road trips with our type 1 diabetic son his endocrinologist has us store all his insulin-lantus & apidra in the cooler full of ice even his open ones. Plus @ that hospital when he was 1st diagnosed the nurses kept his lantus/apidra pens in the fridge btwn uses. When I asked them just like you are asking they said that it didn't need to be refrigerated anymore but it wouldn't hurt the insulin unless it froze it. So if you're worried its bad take the cap off hold it up to a light & if its clear its fine but if its cloudy & you cant see through it then the insulin is bad. Hope this helps take care
