Read here what our UK distributor (www.diabetes.co.uk) writes about the storage and safety of insulin:
- Never store insulin at very cold or very hot temperatures as extreme temperatures destroy insulin.
- Do not put your insulin in the freezer or in direct sunlight
With different wordings, all insulin producers advise users of insulin pens to put the pen cap on your pen after each use to protect the insulin from light. These recommendations are not changed by the usage of DUKADA Trio.
The DUKADA Trio divisible Cap protects the insulin container better against light during injections.
Whereas the original caps are entirely removed from the insulin pen during injections, the Main Part of the DUKADA Cap stays on the pen during these.
Since the main part of the DUKADA Trio Cap covers most of the insulin container, the DUKADA Cap protects the insulin container better from UV-Light during injections than the original pen caps.
DUKADA Trio is unique also in the sense that it does not add length to the insulin pen and the extra width is minimal. It is therefore possible to store your insulin pen in most cooling or travel wallets on the market also when DUKADA Trio is attached to the insulin pen.
