I am waitinf for suggestions on how to solve my issues on novolog that I did not have on Afrezza
Do you have any type one or type 2 family members or close friends?
I have been a type one diabetic for over 10 years who has had problems with lows. I have also had large spikes after meals and lows when I crash. Most diabetics become hypo unaware after many years of these swings so timing meals for me is risky as if my novolog or humolog kicks in quicker I could go into a coma and possibly die.
I was on Afrezza for 6 months and let me tell you the lows vanished. Do you know how easy it was for me to manage my blood sugar? Never in 10 years have a i lived so comfortable with no worries of lows at night as i would say most of Afrezza worked out of my system in 25-45 minutes. I pricked my finger over 1000 times in 6 months and let me tell you only 132 other Afrezza users in the world would know how well this works.
1. Lower A1C
2. Non existent severe lows for me.
3. No spikes after meals.
4. No crashes after meals
5. No lingering insulin for 5 hours
6. Less finger pricking as you are living in real time and you dont stack. (for study off course I had to do it a good bit)
7. No carb counting (as i did not) Still better to do it but not necessary
8. No advance meal planning.
9. Did not have to carry emergency candy and sugars around once I was comfortably with Afrezza.
So now I am back on Novolog dealing with the same issues as I dealt with for 10 years.
So please tell me how I can solve the above issues on my current insulin.
AU - I've watched this board for several years and posted on this board from time to time. I appreciate your willingness to post your personal information on the board in spite of some the jerks here who want to tear you down.
I have a 14-year old son who is Type I and a father in law and brother in law who are Type II. Everything you have posted is 100% spot on as far as the trials of being diabetic are concerned.
My son has been following the Afrezza story for about a year since I brought it to his attention. Even though he uses a pump, he struggles to manage his blood sugars. He manages to keep his A1C around 8, which is very difficult for a teenage boy who is also struggling to keep up with his peers. He desperately wants to use Afrezza.
I have 100% confidence in MNKD/Afrezza, and 100% confidence that this drug will be brought to the market. When it does gain approval, we will be among the first in line to start using it.
