    Do You Think My Insulin Is Bunk.

    okay ive had my insulin for about 5 months in fridge and may be less effective due to the unpreventable changes in the temperture of my fridge.

    my test below what do you think is it bunk and should be thrown out ?

    ive used a max of 15 ius before of humalog. insulin shots done IM with 1/2 inch needle into calve.

    10.15 am , woke up after 8 hr fast ,readings 105mg/dl
    10.25am, 22 ius slin
    10.30, 50 g dex , 5 g glutamine, 7 g creatine.
    10.51 am , 85 grams protein whey , 1 st reading 112 mg/dl
    11.05 am , 2nd reading 121 mg/dl
    11.18am, 3rd reading 137mg/dl
    11.33 am , 4 th reading 135 mg.dl
    12.20 pm, 5 th reading 78 , 2 weetbix , low fat milk , 4 slices white bread 200 g lean minced beef
    1.10 pm 128mg/dl

    i think its bunk my readings are way off. and i can use 50 grams dex for 22 ius slin and dont get hypo at all afer even a hour .

    what do you think

    i tryed 22ius for the first time as i was my montoring my blood sugar levels with glucose metre. i also tryed 30 ius yesterday post workout with 50g dex and still no hypo. im going to throw it out and see if i can get more. it feels like im not even using slin its just feels close to my normal insulin levels.
    well mr sparkle if you couldnt answer this no one will be able to help me.

    Looking at those numbers,I feel it's safe to assume it's degraded.

    exactly what I was thinking....its too cheap to not just throw out. It sounds degraded to me, althought I will add....I ahve had the same thing happend where I was testing it to see if it was bunk and I got hypo, but it took two hours!! It takes me a while to get hypo, but I never go up to 22iu's!! Damn!

    Just because you don't go hypo, it doesn't necessaraly mean the insulin is no good. If you have kept it at the right temp and if it hasn't expired yet, it will be good to go.

    Is it true that slin will turn milky when it goes bad?

    Hi Whitey,

    Your question depends on what kind of insulin we are talking about. The quiker acting insulins such as Humalog look like water, and if that was to go off I believe it's colour wouldn't change. I believe it would look the same as it usually does except be ineffective. I only say this as momentaraly I have a few Humalog bottles that have been sitting there (non refridgirated) way past it's expiry date and that have experienced teperatures beyond 40c and stilll look the same as when I first got them straight from the chemist. So as I said, when it comes to Humalog, and it has gone off or lost its effectiveness, I believe you won't be able to tell just by looking at it. You will have to try it to know.

    On the other hand, you have other insulins that are structured differently. For example, we have insulins that are long lasting (usually the type of insulin that diabetics take at night) and these are insulins that actually look a bit different to Humalog. These insulins look a bit milky, and if they go off perhaps they can look even milikier/thicker.

    Hope that helped.

    As mentioned before, insulin is cheap, play the game safe and get another botttle is your best bet.
