Unpredictable Blood Sugar Levels? The Hidden Cause Might be Damaged Insulin
Temperature changes can weaken insulin, leading to increased blood sugar and symptoms like headaches, drowsiness, extreme hunger, increased thirst, frequent urination, and blurred vision.
Most people don't realize how fragile insulin is, and how to store it for it to work the most effectively. The VIVI Cap is an incredibly simple solution to ensure that insulin is safe to use and that none of it goes to waste.

Did You Know?
The FDA allows insulin to lose up to 5% potency, even in perfect storage conditions.
In less than perfect conditions the potency loss can be much higher, causing unpredictable swings in blood sugar.
That means your insulin is at the risk of being damaged every day:
- in your car
- at work
- at the beach
- when traveling
- in your bag
- around the house or yard
Get peace of mind that lower insulin potency will never be the cause of your unstable blood sugar ever again!

I've lived with type 1 diabetes for over 20 years, and I worry the most about my insulin when I'm going with my kids to the beach or the pool, and I have to pack an old school ice pack in my bag and make sure that it is always in the shade. It's just tedious.. With VIVI Cap I simply throw it in my bag and go.. It's so easy!
This cap works just as advertised. We use it when traveling to keep my son’s insulin cool down here in Texas and other areas of the southwest that can get quite ‘toasty’. It’s nice to store it in our fridge between uses and simply grab it on the go. It’s a great alternative to carrying a big insulated bottle with ice sticks... Thank you!
This technology actually works to keep the insulin at a safe temperature in my purse, without bulky and melting ice packs. It's convenient and compact. You can put the Vivi cap over a pen needle for even more convenience. They are expensive, yes, but how much will an overheated insulin pen cost you? Highly recommended.
Whether working out at home, or at the gym, the VIVI CAP is a must have to keep my insulin at a controlled temperature. Don’t leave the house without it!! Highly recommended to anyone who needs to keep their insulin in the car or even in a hot gym locker for hours at a time!
When there are extreme heat waves here in my country, the VIVI Cap just saves me! It helps me keep my insulin at a normal temperature. Highly recommended!
