Hi all, this may seem dumb, but I haven’t had a glucagon kit in literally YEARS. My doc wrote up an rx for one recently, and I picked it up at room temp and no indication of refrigeration needed. Just want to be sure. Thx!
Last kit I got could be kept out of the fridge as long as temp didn’t get above “room temperature” 77 F.
My wife doesn’t let me run the AC much so it gets a lot warmer than that in the house in the summer.
It’ll keep longer in the fridge.
I don’t think it does. I have had several given to me in the past few years and come to think of it, they all worked, but none of them were refrigerated, even those from ambulance crew. Afterall, what is the point of giving us something to carry that is so bulky that cannot be refrigerated? Thanks for the reminder though. I think I need a couple of new ones as the ones I have are out of date.
My brand new one says "Before Use: Store at 22C (77F), excursions 15C - 30 C (59F to 88F)" I'd say let's not put it in the fridge, it will be too cold!
