From Woonsocket, Rhode Island, USA:

I'm thinking about going on an insulin pump. However, I have a couple of bottles of Humalog that I haven't used yet, and I would hate to waste this insulin. Can I inject the Humalog from the bottles into the pump?


You would be using either Humalog or NovoLog in an Insulin pump, not a long-acting insulin. I assume your insulin is kept in the refrigerator, so as long as it has not expired, it should be fine to use.
