    Taking the Plunge with Afrezza.

    factspls88, yes, as you probably know if you have been reading sam of tudiabetes' posts about his blood glucose, his Afrezza meal timings, and his really normally great quiescent blood glucose readings just prior to meals, this sam is very insulin sensitive. He has worked very hard over the years on his blood glucose control, and he has been almost religious about counting carbohydrate grams he has for meals. It is admirable he has done that, but clearly he would rather be doing more productive and fun activities than managing and maintaining his type 1 diabetes. There are not many diabetics who would strive so diligently to maintain such tight control with Novolog. However as you can see from his passage above that I quoted from his text, with Afrezza he not only derives the same tight control with his blood glucose levels and range, but also he is no longer worried about hypoglycemia or having to spend large amounts of his time babysitting his diabetes.

    Did you see that pic of the cheeseburger and fries meal he used (after a few weeks of using Afrezza) to test against Afrezza's speed to bring down his blood sugar? That was a tasty looking burger. He has stated a few times how fast and high his blood sugar can rocket with such a meal using other brand name insulins. With this challenging burger meal his Afrezza headed those excursions off at the pass fast, and brought them right back down without getting out of control. I am so happy for him!

    factspls88, this is a follow-up post sam of tudiabetes wrote about an hour ago. He explains his clear reasons for preferring Afrezza instead of Novolog.
    "That's the whole appeal Denise. I had superb control with novolog, there was really very little room for improvement in overall control... But with afrezza I have the same degree of control (while early in the learning process) essentially zero fear of hypoglycemia, and diabetes management takes up about 2% of my thought process instead of 50%."
