I had my insulin and meter sitting in a little pouch right in the blazing heat the other day. Ugh! When I realized it, I tried to test my b/s and the meter gave me a warning that it was too hot. I had actually just eaten something and thought I'd be able to do a shot, so I thought what the heck, I may as well try, even though the insulin bottle was very hot to the touch. Now I have been using that insulin for three days since and it has been fine, worked exactly as I would have expected it to.
Has anyone had the experience of it not working? How hot does it need to get? This really makes me wonder about how they tell you to carry an ice pack and all that rigamarole. Hmmmm...... Now I'm wondering if I should get my unopened bottles out of the fridge where they are bound to freeze one day, as the lettuce does every once in a while.
