    If you have to use a self filled cartridges can you fill 2 or 3 and keep them in the fridge till needed a few days late. Just been so long sine I’ve read up (years) I just cant remember.

    I was told never to prefill my self-fill pump cartridges as the plastic of the cartridge reacts with the insulin over time.
    I assume prefilled cartridges are made of something else??

    Yes there glass, all I was thinking if you use a self filled every 2-3 days it wouldn’t have any interaction with it.
