Afrezza is a revolutionary mealtime insulin that’s a total game-changer. It’s no understatement to say it’s completely life-changing to a diabetic.
Using a tiny whistle-like device, natural bioidentical insulin (not an analogue) is inhaled directly into the bloodstream, where insulin is normally released by the pancreas, instead of being injected under the skin.
When natural human insulin is delivered to the normal location, at the normal speed at the normal level, something remarkable happens… Normal glucose levels are maintained at mealtimes.
Although it’s inhaled after you start eating, it’s so fast that no matter how high the glycemic index of the meal, Afrezza is still faster (see my extreme experiments). Amazingly, this happens without serious hypoglycaemia.
It’s so different, it’s quite overwhelming:
- No needles, only basal
- No dosing before eating
- No dose calculations
- No carb counting
- No insulin-on-board
- No taste or odour
- Very discreet
- No preservatives
- No phenol or m-cresol
- It’s bioidentical human insulin without modifications
- Stable without refrigeration (see experiment)
Afrezza lets diabetics:
- Eat foods that were impossible
- Enjoy going to a restaurant
- Decide not to eat all the food on the plate
- Cook without scales and serve food without weighing
- Offer some of your food to someone else
- Eat a more balanced, varied diet
- Attain non-diabetic HbA1C results
- Minimise the chance of hypos
