    They sound very enthusiastic about their product. I like their passion. It sounds genuine. Not just about money. Also, I find it interesting what he said about fast vs. slower insulins. I’m so constantly amazed what there is to learn about diabetes…

    Since my diagnosis in October, I’ve been so very grateful that I was diagnosed at a time when Lantus, pens, and rapid insulins were available. Yet when I see what’s still in store for the future of diabetes, I wish my body could’ve waited longer, haha (or not at all?). I hope and pray every day that I’ll see more milestones in my lifetime, preferably my still-young lifetime. Stuff like this is promising. But I definitely wouldn’t go for anything that they couldn’t prove wouldn’t harm me long-term.

    interesting article. good luck! I would still use my pump as my primary insulin device but I can imagine throwing one in my back pocket as a backup on a long bike ride or something, as long as the price is reasonable. I think it would be a great thing for type 2s who are resistant to starting insulin therapy though.

    Interesting discussion on the price of insulin being one of the most expensive drugs. It wasn’t always that way, but was transformed even though the therapy has fundamentally changed little since insulin was discovered in 1921.

    what about the problems i’ve heard about lung function after extended use of inhaled insulin. the studies of children in ecuador using inhaled insulin ended horribly – collapsed lungs, uncontrolled bg, seizures…

    Insulin in liquid form can be a real problem in hot third world locations. Tends to go bad before it can get to the people who need it, or won’t last long once it gets there. A dry/powdered insulin would be great for that market.

    Of course, I still think the mistake is in not making an inhalled basal. Most D-folk need basal first, and fast acting later. By the time T-2s need fast acting they’ve been taking basal shots for a year or two and are over the fear-of-needles thing.

    Great and informative post Amy. So who’s making pastry with that bong? Doesn’t it affect the taste? :-)

    Interesting stuff.

    I do hope they are successful. Innovation is good for everyone involved.

    Regarding the fast vs. slower insulins, as a person with diabetes, doesn’t my lack of amylin contribute to my need for a faster absorbing insulin? I would hope that the people who did some of those studies factored those types of things in too.

    Thanks for the great interview Amy.

    Please hurry up with this insulin I was on exzubera when it first came out due to my strong fear of needles,when i was told by my doctor that it was no longer going to be manufactured due to concerns about lung function i was “devastated” to say the least, I later learned that it was all about pure and simple greed!!! If you guys need someone to test this new inhaled insulin on don’t hesitate to contact me!!,
