Your comment below shows your ignorance of what Afrezza is "unless investors are hoping a needle-phobic diabetic pope could be MannKind's next spokesman -"
Did you know that the fact that Afrezza is inhaled is nothing more than a convenience of the product?
Afrezza is ultra rapid insulin with an onset of 12 minutes. I would guess from personal experience that 90% of it is out of your system in 30 minutes. So what does this mean? This means that as a diabetic you can manage your blood sugar like a non diabetic hence the onset is about as fast as your pancreas. The fact that it does not linger around for 4 hours as insulins today do helps avoid the deadly lows. I would know since I almost died on normal insulin several times. Yes with Afrezza you can avoid the highs and the lows. You dont have to worry about night time lows as you can adjust your blood sugar in 30 minutes even at 10:30pm and by 11:15pm you can go to bed knowing that you will not have a low at night.
Thats right I was on it for 6 months and it changed my life and now my compassion use application is before the FDA. So all of you people that keep posting ignorant information about a life saving product should be ashamed of yourself. At least you should do some research before posting such lines as "unless investors are hoping a needle-phobic diabetic pope could be MannKind's next spokesman -"
What do type 2s do today? Instead of taking insulin they pop pills which burns out your pancreas and damages your kidneys. Soon enough they will able to take quick puff of Afrezza at a meal and it will help them process their meal just as fast as their pancreas would. Why do many type 2s pop pills? It is because of the stigma of the needles and diabetes. If they pop pills they think I am ok but in fact they are harming themselves. The current trials also involve type patients and it should be impressive.
I can tell you that Afrezza changed my life and it will get approved. The current trials were designed hand
so if I'm understanding the situation at hand here correctly..... it's not the efficacy that has been a past hurdle. It is the delivery system of the actual inhaler. Do we know the difference between the old inhaler (denied) and the new inhaler that was used in the current study?
All this info is out there. You are mostly correct . I ll have to find a link to you as its a very long story on what went down on last crl. Just keep in mind the fda has already requested a phase 4 on kids..kids as young as 4 years old after approval. What does that tell you.
Diabetes drugs are being evaluated for pancreatic risk. Merck, Januvia, Bristal Myers, Byetta and Novo, Victoza are being scrutinized by U.S regulators for a possible link to pre-cancerous findings.
This nation is a nation of pill poppers. Type 2 diabetics should be taking insulin. They are harming themselves. Just wait for type 2 trial numbers. I am type one but i seen 1stvhand how fast afrezza can lower a high blood sugar. Give me an insulin that can correct a high blood sugar in 20 minutes. Only afrezza can do that.
Thank you so much for sharing your story/struggle with diabetes--I only wish I had more money to invest in this--I wonder how many more compassion use applications regarding Afrezza are before the FDA--and would this "sway" them to approve it for general use faster???
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You would think but I doubt it. Fda does not get that this is a life saver. You can have perfect treatment and still die of a low today. Even if the A1c does not beat normal insulin..the fact that it lowers lows by over 50% afrezza should get priority review.
Do you know of anybody else that participated in the trial?
If so - what was there experience?
It sounds as if you are a 100% believer in the drup and its application method.
Thank You and good luck.
Let"s face it these guys do very little do diligence,and no little about the disease it"s side affects,and how this therapy will affect the lifes of diabets!They are give a porder to do a piece on a stock and slant it a certain way and do what they are told no credability at all!!!
