    How many vials of humalog do you go through in ONE month? I know it will vary, but I just wanted to have an idea! THANKS!

    We go through one a month. Actually, it's so close that I just use our Novalog until it's gone, because it will last us 28-35 days and we don't have problems with it losing efficacy.

    I usually use up 2 1/2, but occasionally I break into a 3rd... every once in a while a 4th. My insulin requirements can vary.. a LOT!

    Our script is for two just in case but we typically only need one per month.

    Our script is for 5, we usually use around 3--but it can vary widely as low as 2 and as high as 4. DD's TDD has been exceptionally high recently.
