I had an appointment with my endocrinologist who told me that if I ever got tired of using an insulin pump, I could use the new inhaled human insulin(it is actually powder) that is ingested orally by Unit. I looked it up for the manufacturer ManKind and all the prescribing data is there.
I wonder if anyone has started using it for Type 1. You must also use a long-lasting insulin like Lantis, injected once or twice a day.
It sounds promising and I just wondered what people had experienced so far, since it is new.
Is it possible to bolus for a meal and then take more if you decide to eat more an hour later or before your next meal?
How does it affect the throat? One side effect listed was a cough or throat roughness.
thanks, if anyone has already tried this.
