There's an expiration date, but do syringes ever really expire?
I have syringes from the stoneage, they're still in the original packaging and sterile (I guess, unless sterility has its limitations). She's on an insulin pump now but I always kept the needles around in case she had a midnight pump failure or other crazy emergency. I don't replace them every year, am I supposed to?

The syringe itself doesnt expire, but the insulin will.. Even if its refrigerated. Just be aware of that, i'd replace it by the date because otherwise your body will have insulin reactions


Syd Knee
Well I wouldn't, but I think you learned long ago that I don't always follow best practices with my diabetic care.

I wonder the same thing about bottled water. I suppose the plastic breaks down and leaks into the water? I dunno, maybe a syringe can break down, too and affect whatever you put in it.

The plastic gets brittle after a while and yes, they can lose their sterility, but that takes 5 or more years depending on where you store them. I wouldn't wait that long. My suggestion is to offer the syringes you have now to the local Humane Society and ask the doc for a script to get a few to keep on hand for emergencies. Get a new script every year, but don't feel obligated to buy them annually. Replace them every 2 years or so. The Humane Society will be thrilled.

I am presuming that you are speaking of empty syringes and not prefills.
