Is my Humalog still good?
I ordered Humalog from Canada. They always ship it with a ice pack. But when I get the package, the ice pack is melted and no longer frozen. And the Slin is not cool. Just normal temperature. Does this mean that the potency of the humalog is degraded?
I've been using it for already 2 week at 10ius post workout and not once have I felt hypo. I even tested my Blood sugar and its always at around 90-95. And yes, I do inject it IM.

90-95 is low normal range, once you get to the 70-80 range is when people go hypo. Slin is good for 30 days not being refrigerated, so I'm going to say you're ok

Now...what about if it is refrigerated again AFTER the long trip? How long does the Slin last me for? Until the expiration date? Or still only 30 days?

Thing is,they keep it chilled.Then ship it,it gets warm.Sometimes too warm.They say it's good for 30 days at room temp.I live in an oven,so room temp for me is different than other ppl around the country.Especially Canada.So when the Temp keep fluctuating,I can't see the slin staying at it's peak potency.

I belive if kept at room temp, it should be fine. However, refridgirated is always a safer way to go ofcourse.

So bottom line. What does this mean for me? That the humalog is weak? That my usual 10ius isn't good enough? I remember last year using 10ius post workout and I can feel always going slighlty hypo right before my PPWO meal. Thats how I knew it was working. Not only that but my BG reader always said my Blood sugar was low. I gained a lot and was harder. So far this year from using this humalog....none of that has happened.
Now I'm thinking my Humalog is garbage. What should I do?

I say send them a e mail and tell them what the deal is.They replaced mine.As I said above,mine came to me a little bubbly(frothy).
