IDF Europe awareness paper on storage of insulin

27 November 2019

In the light of recent scientific findings, the International Diabetes Federation European Region (IDF Europe) has issued this paper to raise awareness on the topic of safe storage of insulin and to provide  recommendations to healthcare professionals (HCPs) and PWDs, as well as IDF Member Associations. As more evidence is emerging on the challenges of storing insulin at home by PWDs, IDF Europe recognizes the need for raising awareness about these overlooked risks, and improving PWDs’ education. These recommendations must be practical and go beyond the limited insulin package leaflets. Full publication can be accessed here
