    Um, wow?!?! That sounds incredible! How many cartridges could you use at once with the inhaler? You said they come in 4 and 8 units. So if you need 20 units, for example, do you load it, inhale 8, then load it again and inhale another 8, then load a 4 and inhale that? Or can you load it with a bunch of cartridges, dial it up to 20, then inhale once?

    I’m rooting for it too! One of those things I’ll hope for, but put out of my mind until the dream becomes a reality. :)

    Because the insulin spike is so immediate you will not need to precisely match the dose to carb intake; no carb counting or complex meal titration. One dose small or large, that is it.

    There are a couple of problems. (1) Color coding needs to be done so that males with red/green color `blindness’ can distinguish the dose amounts — I ould prefer large printed numbers that can be easily read. (2) There are some diabetics (particularly type 1′s) that make no detectable endogenous insulin; so that precise dosing is still a must. For this reason inhalable insulin may not be a viable option for some if not many type 1′s.

    But above all FDA is corrupt, they will never approve this drug regardless, unfortunately AL MANNs legacy will end here on a sad note and its unfortunate that all the deserving patients won’t be able to use this 8th wonder. What one can do if an institution like FDA is corrupt from top to bottom, even the doctors they have in the panels they get influenced, sad but true.
