Health Tip: Store Diabetes Supplies Safely
Avoid extreme temperatures

(HealthDay News) -- Safe storage of insulin and syringes can help maintain the integrity of medication and reduce the risk of injury.

The American Diabetes Association suggests:

  • Store insulin in an area that is protected against extreme heat and extreme cold. Avoid areas prone to temperature extremes, such as in your car, freezer or in direct sunlight.
  • Check the expiration date on your insulin before using, and inspect it to be sure the insulin looks normal. Discard insulin that is expired, crystallized or clumped.
  • Destroy or re-cap syringes when discarding them.
