There are some air bubbles in my insulin. Anyone know how to remove it? It's will effect the injection of insulin?

it's really hard to tell how large they are. typically you don't want any but champagne air bubbles are ok as long as there aren't a ton

if it's an insulin pen - put needle in pen, point pen/needle straight up 👆- I usually tap pen so bubbles are right under needle & turn nob to 1 or 2 units - then hit button. air should come out

I agree with**** that's how I used to get rid of them. I doubt you will inject air as the pen (needle side) points down so air would go to the top
