Question:

From New York, USA:

Does the red Glucagon Emergency Kit need to be stored in the refrigerator? I always thought room temperature was fine.

Do lancets expire? What about ketone strips once the vial has been opened?

Is CWD given financial support by pump companies?

Answer:

Glucagon does not need to be refrigerated.

Lancets don't expire if unused. Urine ketone strips in a vial expire 90 days after the vial has been opened.

Almost all major diabetes companies who are involved in type 1 diabetes either advertise on the CWD web site or participate in CWD conferences, so, yes, CWD receives financial support from insulin pump companies.
