    Insulin suppositories? I will “stick” to my needles ,thank you very much. What kind of a person has a lifestyle that would include suppositories?

    I think the big story here is that GluMetrics was able to raise $20M this Fall! in a tough economy and they’ve been around a while. So what’s the story behind that? It seems to me that with DexCom hooking up with Edwards Life Sciences for a hospital based system and now new money being pumped into GlucMetrics for a newly redirected focus on the hospital based product that the focus for cgm is now in the hospital vs. making it work in the field with free range patients. Different settings – different needs. What does this mean for people with type 1 diabetes who never go to hospital?

    I recall a story from a family trip to Europe in the late 1960s. My mum was trying to get something and it was hard for her to find it in liquid form, most pharmacies only had it in suppository form. I don’t know if this is still a preference in some countries.

    Insulin suppositories may be useful for post-surgery treatment or kids treatment. I can imagine that in particular cases people may prefer insulin suppositories to needles or when they cannot swallow their drugs…
