clinicaltrials dot gov is where the trials are listed. If I was you I would just call Mannkind and Sanofi and ask.
Keep in mind I had 6 months of practice before getting back on 3 weeks ago. Last 30 days I am running an A1C of 5.7....Last 6 Days 5.1...Keep in mind this is blood sugars that would equal that if I keep this up for 90 days which I will. My average blood sugar every day is between 92 and 105. That is probably better than half of all non-diabetics posting here. It is all about letting go of what we thought we know about insulin. I knew from day 1 it was a life changer and I think your son already knows this. If I have a high carb meal I take another dose an hour later. Most of Afrezza is burned up in 60-70 minutes as shown by my test I ran yesterday. So I nip any post-meal rise in the bud before it gets up there. I have been lowering my overall a1c every week as I gotten better as the weeks have progressed. I expect to finish my first 90 days on Afrezza with an A1C of around 5.5.
Let's throw all that out the window. I go to bed with a sugar reading every night of around 80-120 and wake up every morning 70-90. I live life knowing my organs are not being damaged by high post-meal sugars that can take hours to get down. Afrezza also delivers first phase insulin, meaning insulin in the first 15 minutes of delivery which in turn suppresses hepatic glucose production lowering fasting glucose in the am and also post-meal glucose. This is why I wake up with such a great fasting sugars. This is what people do not understand fully!
I tweeted my average blood sugar for 20, 15, 10 and 4 days. It is not an A1C as that was just put there as a reference.
I am not measuring an A1C. I am simply put down what that A1C would be if that is kept up for 90 days. Mid 5s wont be a problem. I can achieve mid 5s without trying.
I would not believe it myself unless I see it in person. If I am looking at this from the outside I would say this Afrezzauser does not have diabetes.
I split it into 2 once every 12 hours. 15 to 17 u every 12 hours. Every type 1 I spoke to is around 30-35 u per 24 hours.
You are incorrect! I take a total of 30-35 Lantus per 24 hour day. Every type 1 I have spoken to is around 30-35 units per day. I am 6'3 230lbs
I have done the same thing. There is no train crash. It is a very soft landing and there is no panic. As I have said for years unless you experience Afrezza it is hard to believe this. I think now you understand why I went public with this under this alias as I had to tell the world about it.
If everyone would make test runs on the first day they will be comfortable with Afrezza right away. I have been telling people to pretend you are on your old insulin and watch your sugar rise and then take the small dose and see how far and how fast it drops. Put it down on paper. Repeat this with the larger dose. Once you know this information you are set. On the next take it at the start of the meal if over 110. If lower than 110 delay the dose 10-15 minutes at the start of the meal.
This is just my opinion. This is what works for me.
Correct! I just switched to taking half my dose of Lantus in the morning and half in the evening. We were not allowed to do that in the trials. Yes, Al Mann did point this out.
Self- Employed in various fields. I am just an ordinary guy that hustles to make a living like most of us. I just happen to hit diabetes in the lottery of diseases. Always have tried to make the best out of whatever cards if have been dealt. I went to the FDA Adcom because I and millions of diabetics had to have this drug to make our lives better. Right now, I feel like I do not have diabetes anymore. My sugar is running like a non-diabetic person. I am more excited than ever. To wake up every morning to see an 80s blood sugar to start the day is a miracle to me. It will be a miracle to others as well.
He only learned about it a couple of weeks ago so he did great. We met up in L.A. and he is very down to earth and a great guy. He is planning to get on Afrezza. I can tell everyone that Afrezza is surpassing my expectations. Since I had to follow protocols for the trials I could not really test Afrezza to its limits. What I see is incredible.
Lantus and Afrezza are 2 different things. They do a different job and I need both. Our bodies provide energy 24 hours a day, not just at meal times, I don't plan on babysitting diabetes and setting Alarms to take a puff Afrezza at 3am because I have no basal. If a Novolog/Humalog is not on basal or a pump that gives them a steady drop it would be the same issue for them. Afrezza is for mealtime and Lantus/Basal for those with no pump is my background insulin. Sure I could control it without it but why would I make my life harder?
If your sugar is under 100 delay dose 10 to 15 minutes after meal start. If its over 110-120 i usually inhale at the start of the meal.
My basal was lowered on the trials and we were not allowed to use a CGM. I know some patients did not take follow up doses when they should have. Just like on Novolog/Humolog you have to take follow up dose if your sugar is still high. The difference is it happens in minutes and not hours. Basal is such a small amount of background insulin it does not really do anything for meals or post meals short term. I have a cgm now but no pump. I take Lantus 2 times a day. I measured myself way more than the trial required. I wanted to know for myself how it worked and how the action went. It is a wonderful thing to watch it on my CGM now.
I been locked in 80-100 most of the day. I did forget to make my basal last night like an idiot. Still trying to play catch up from 2 trips so I got so much to keep track of. When you been a diabetic for many years and you have to wait hours for your sugar to come down which you know is killing you slowly its not any fun. When a diabetic tries Afrezza and watches their sugar drop in minutes, you suddenly realize that you have control of this disease. What else could I say that I have not said over the last 2 years. Its a great week to be a diabetic!
