Anyone use pen cartridges to fill their syringes or pump?
I have heard that some people use insulin pen cartidges to fill syringes or their pump. I hear they do this because their is much less waste because their is far less insulin in a pen cartridge than in a bottle. Since pen cartridges are cheaper they save money. If the child is young, there is still enough insulin in a pen cartridge to last a month.
Anyone doing this or has heard of this?
