From Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada:

It is early morning. I am a Registered Nurse presently at work. The question came up as to which insulin to give first, the cloudy, or the clear. I was taught it doesn't make a difference, and I just looked into my text book and it doesn't answer that question.


Most authorities would suggest drawing up the clear insulin first and then adding the cloudy insulin. You might also check out for further details regarding the delivery of injected insulin.
