I am SO SAD!
I’ve been using Afrezza for about 10 months, as an adjunct therapy to my insulin pump. Whenever my blood sugars were rising rapidly or running high, I inhale a 4 unit cartridge of powder insulin … and my blood sugars come down rapidly and level off rapidly. It works so much faster than Novolog or Humalog.
It’s not for everyone and it can have some side effects … but it really works. As long as you don’t mind that some people might think you are using a mj pipe, you can even inhale in public.
I HOPE MannKind is able to find another, and more successful channel for manufacturing and distribution. I HOPE it does not just simply go away, like the Asante Snap Pump or the Deltec Cozmo Pump!
