    On some things I'd go past the expiration date, infusion sets, reseveroirs, even strips, to some extent.. and while things do deteriorate over time and its not one day its good the next its not. I wouldn't risk it with glucagon.. glucagon is life saving.. if you go to use it two months after its expired and it doesn't work.. what are you going to do? I personally wouldn't take that chance.

    It sucks that they cost so much, especially for those that don't have the insurance coverage for them (I hope NO insurance company would deny covering glucagon, I assume in the case of no insurance coverage.. there isn't ANY insurance.. if they are just denying glucagon prescription then that needs to be apealed.)

    It's about the same now, except the needle is attached, and the liquid is already in the syringe.
