Filling the Syringe

There’s no need to worry about air bubbles except that too many means not as much insulin is in the syringe as might be without them. Air bubbles are only dangerous if the shot is going into the blood stream but insulin shots go into fatty tissue. Just roll or tip the insulin bottle to mix the liquid and crystals at the bottom, never shake it, then insert the needle tip and draw until the top of the black plunger is at the number you are using as your dose.
