Overall, I found this very helpful, but 2 things contradict what I have often read elsewhere, which I would appreciate anybody weighing in on. 1) This does recommend manipulating the insulin container to 'mix' it. With Lantus, at least, I have read elsewhere that it does not need, and should not be manipulated... it is a clear solution. 2) on filling a syringe, it advises putting the syringe (already raised to the dosage level) into the liquid (upside down vial) and pushing the air into it, prior to filling. Elsewhere, I have read putting air into the insulin will hasten its degradation... better to dispense the air into the air in the bottle while it is upright; then turn the bottle upside down to fill. ???
