    You Kool-Aid drinkers don't get it

    Who pays for recommended drugs? Drug insurance companies do and they will block the use of new drugs as they usually do with Protocols and High Co-Pays that no patient wants to pay. Especially with so many other generic products available with low Co-Pays and tiny needle insulin Pens that patients love. Also, some doc's have been recommending early start insulin for the T2's for many years...its not a new theory. Some of you think its "new" thinking", its not. I heard that talk over 15 years ago. So having an inhaled insulin will not see much of a bump on early insulin use. Sorry guys, this drug will be used in only a few "special cases " ( recurrent MRSA skin infections, severe bleeding disorders, poor vision, maybe documented Needle Phobia, etc ) . Maybe 1% of the Diabetic T1/T2's. The MNKD story is in the technology for other drugs...Not inhaled insulin...by the way - this has already failed the stockholders with such a poor showing-very low price targets etc, . Now if you want, take a little more Kool-Aid.
