Old Supplies

I have a few old cartridges and sets I can't use and don't want to throw away. I found a company that says they donate some supplies but they won't take items that say Rx only, and of course these items do say that.

Erin replied to Erin's discussion 'Cortisone or Steroid Shots - How much extra insulin?'
"Is that the first time you had two around the same time? I wonder if twice the amount means twice the increase needed in the insulin. I know everyone is different, but shouldn't there be a protocol that will at least give us a starting point…"

Erin replied to Erin's discussion 'Cortisone or Steroid Shots - How much extra insulin?'
"It's wild how much insulin we need for this, isn't it. I got up to 170% and now am trying to decrease it but hard to tell when and how much."

"Skye, Good point. I guess the dosage would make a difference too. They didn't provide that specific info to me; I will definitely ask if I have to do this again. Thanks."
