    The FDA is away of hypoglycemia issues

    I had 0 lows over a reading of 50 in 6 months and that was starting on a new treatment from ground 0. I had maybe a few readings under 70. This is unheard of in over 1000 blood sugar readings in 6 months. Yes I pricked my finger over 1000 times with a needle to test my sugars. No I am not afraid of needles and I could care less if Afrezza was inhaled or injected as long as it works the way it does. For 6 months I was able to live like a normal person for the first time in ten years as I had no worries or stress from lows. Many shorts and ignorant people want us to believe that this is just an inhaled insulin like Exubera. I could see it on AL Mann today on TV the frustration of nonsense regarding the notion that Afrezza is anything like Exubera. I wish Afrezza was not inhaled so everyone can stop talking about this. The fact that its inhaled is just a convenience which is remarkable. But the fact that not only I but family members could go to sleep at night knowing it was impossible for me to have hypoglycemia or low blood sugar at night is truly the remarkable thing. Going back to Novolog was one of my worst weeks ever being a diabetic. To make me go back on an insulin that peeks in 1.5 hours sometimes even 2 vs 12 minutes is a total joke to me at this point. Tail ends and crashes ...These article writers are clueless as to what they are talking about.

    I am open to any questions.
