New Invention Saves Some Insulin Users Over $500/year on Insulin
Diabetes Care and Education Specialist
Insulin can be damaged from exposure to temperature extremes, especially in hot weather.
But how can someone with diabetes tell their insulin went bad?
Unfortunately, the short answer is they often can’t... until it’s too late.
It doesn’t always change color, or give any other clues that it’s spoiled.
Insulin that has been damaged due to extreme heat or cold can become ineffective.., leaving people with diabetes with blood sugars that start to climb, with multiple correction doses that are ineffective.
To make matters worse, with insulin prices skyrocketing, some insulin users are reporting they waste over $500 per year in accidentally spoiled insulin.
The good news? An Israeli company has invented a new device that helps stop insulin from spoiling and saves users hard earned money.
The Hidden Consequences of a Hot Summer
Not being able to keep insulin at the correct temperature, leading to damaged or ineffective insulin
When going back to school /college keeping insulin in a backpack or locker can impair its’ effectiveness
There can be dangerous health consequences as blood sugars start to rise unexpectedly
Most people don't realize how fragile insulin is, and how to store it for it to work the most effectively.

Who Cares if Insulin Goes Bad?
So what happens when insulin unexpectedly goes bad?
According to physicians, two of the most common consequences of improperly storing insulin:
1) An Unexpected (and Easily Avoidable) Trip to the Emergency Room
Unexpectedly high blood sugar, even after taking insulin. Mood swings. Sudden low energy.
Sound familiar? If left unchecked, it could lead to DKA.
Every summer, thousands of people with diabetes land in the ER with DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis) that seemingly came out of nowhere. Hospital visits can cost some patients thousands in additional out-of-pocket costs.
In some cases, improper insulin storage is a contributing factor.
2) You Could be Wasting $500 or More in Spoiled Insulin and Replacement Costs
Insulin costs have been skyrocketing, with the cost often reaching over $100 -- per pen!
Just a few minutes in a hot car or in a bag on the beach can mean having to spend $100 or more on replacement insulin...for each pen!

So... what’s the solution?
In the past, the only options out there were bulky... inconvenient... only protected the insulin for a few hours at a time... or just outright ineffective.
As one of the biggest recent breakthroughs in insulin management, Israeli company TempraMed invented the VIVI CAP, a first-of-its-kind technology to help people with diabetes safely and conveniently store their insulin on the go.
The VIVI Cap is an FDA Registered and patented device that uses space-grade technology to keep insulin at the recommended safe temperature day after day.
It’s small, lightweight and will conveniently fit into your pockets, bags, and purses.
The best part?
It’s always ready to go. It needs no charging, no batteries, nor refrigeration.
And it works for years (that’s right - years).
I have been a Registered Pharmacist for more than 29 years and a Diabetes Educator for most of my career and I was so excited to find the VIVI CAP products. Temperature extremes affect Insulin and once that happens, the blood sugar controls get out of hand. I really think it's a life-saving product. Plus, it's all FDA registered and very easy to use.
