Since we are told to have a one year supply in case of emergency, what should a diabetic person do since they cannot obtain enough insulin to survive for a year? What will happen to them?




This is an example that is instructive for several prescription medicines, since many won’t last a year. Of course insulin cannot be kept for a year, but a discussion with one’s doctor would be the best idea. They can give accurate information about how long it is safe to store insulin as well as the best conditions to store it in.

Diabetes As for what diabetics should do regarding emergency supplies, I would think that following the doctor’s advice as exactly as possible is the best way to go. Couple that with faith in Heavenly Father that He will watch over us and fill the gaps that we cannot fill ourselves.
