"I was thinking today that maybe the way to go (for me) with syringes is to preload them with a couple of days worth and then toss them. So maybe 4 doses (68u) of my Levemir in one syringe, and then 40u of Apidra in the other. The Apidra would…"

"I pretty much use them until either the numbers have worn off or when it's too hard to poke through the diaphram. Until then, they're still fair game. Lancets? Gee, I think I'm still using the one I changed out in 2007... ;-)"
