I don’t think anyone is bashing injected insulin. I certainly am not. Just because I’m enjoying success with Afrezza (and sharing it), it does not mean that I think injected insulin is bad by any means and hopefully you aren’t taking it that way. I still use injected insulin via a pump.
It’s hard not to be emotional when something like this comes along, impacts your life in such a substantive way and can potentially be taken away.
[/quote]Thanks, Mike. Afrezza is simply not an option for me and I am ever glad that it works so well for folks that can get it and that can use it successfully. I don’t have any issues with the maker the marketer or the product. My interest in this topic is helping folks understand why the product is having troubles. And now I have learned that it is prescribed to a child and the label clearly states “it is not known if Afrezza® is safe and effective in children under 18 years of age.”
There are many reasons why this product is having trouble reaching the diabetics who can and want to use it. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for ya, but I’m not adding MNKND to my portfolio
