This impressive video demonstrates how Afrezza works very differently to previous treatments for Type 1 diabetes.
Although I’m only 3 weeks in and still working it all out, I’m beginning to see how Afrezza can really widen the range of foods I could eat while still improving my glucose control. This is the best demonstration I could think of to show off its capabilities. For non-diabetics, read this for real experiences of would happen without Afrezza.
I did this test on an empty stomach. I started at 11:57am, the only thing I had consumed was a coffee at 9:27am. For this I had the small Afrezza dose (blue), so there was no residual glucose lowering going on.
I couldn’t have done this even a week ago, and feel like I am getting better control of my diabetes and a better understanding of Afrezza every day.
Carbs: Ice-cream 15.2g + 375mL Coke 40g = TOTAL 55.2g sugar
Lantus: 7u AM, 9u PM – (before Afrezza, Lantus was 10u AM, 9u PM)
Also see a follow up experiment using emergency glucose here.

Update: The results for this experiment may be even more impressive now that I have further optimised my basal insulin type and dose. Expect a re-run in the future.
iPhone recording seems to have an 8GB size limit and stopped recording briefly, at an uninteresting point. This is why the timer can be seen jumping at around the 1hr mark.
