Novolog pen


(Chris) #1

For those using the Novolog pen… How long does it last on average? Our 1st pen lasted 11 day. Is this accurate? we were thinking it was a month or so supply.

Both of our kids are currently still using the Novolog pens. Each pen contains 100 units, so it can really depend on your carb:insulin ratio, and how many carbs you are eating at each meal. Our daughter usually uses around 6-8 units/day for meals and snacks, so pen lasts her about 12-15 days. Our son is younger and is on a different carb:insulin ratio, so his can last up to 20 days per pen.
