Insulin for Life and more fridge space

Yesterday I finally posted off our extra insulin. I have kept 4 vials of Novorapid but the rest of the Novorapid, the Levemir and Protophane are now on the way to helping someone else.
As I showed in the photos during Diabetes Blog Week we don't need all the supplies that we used to since DD#4 F transitioned to glibenclamide (glyburide). Sending the supplies to Insulin for Life Australia has been on my to do list since January. I finally get to cross it off the list. And I get some space back in my fridge and pantry (the diabetes supply shelf is less crowded now.) I also sent off some pens, needles, lancets and lancing devices that we don't use.

I posted a while back about the need for insulin and other diabetes supplies both in developing countries and after disasters in first world countries. I'm glad that our surplus can help someone in need.

thats truly awesome! im glad to hear you helped out someone else in need. i really should send off our surplus before the expiry dates. Reubs has been on some combinations of insulins, that we cant possibly use it all.
