AfrezzaI just started to experiment with the newest “insulin”, Afrezza, the inhalable insulin.  I’m not great at keeping accurate logs … but I can say that I see that Afrezza brings my blood sugars down faster than Humalog alone … and then it seems to level off!

Afrezza is inhaled insulin invented and developed by MannKind (Al Mann) Corporation, and now a Sanofi product (approved a little over a month ago).

So here is a post by an Afrezza user, Sam Finta.  He was in the early Affinity drug study and has been posting his experiences for 3 years:  http://afrezzauser.com/testing-the-limits-of-afrezza-unbelievable/    There are graphics and logs.

Afrezza 2There is also a reference to the talk by Al Mann, at Johns Hopkins University in 2010 … very fascinating and worth watching.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muBuxTqxmQo

Got questions about Afrezza? Ask me. Ask your endocrinologist. Ask Sam Finta.
