Afrezza is prohibitively expensive to those outside the US, and the FreeStyle Libre sensors are also very costly outside Europe. This project has already cost over AU$7300 of my own money, but I believe this is groundbreaking work that needs to be done.
Please consider donating if you’d like these experiments to continue and help build this into a valuable resource for anyone interested in, or starting on Afrezza.
If you are in Europe and have access to FreeStyle Libre sensors, please contact me as I would like to purchase them from you.
Using Afrezza is a major adjustment for a Type 1 coming from injectable insulin, and there isn’t any decent information out there on how to use it. If I can continue this expensive project, I hope to build this into the “missing manual” for Afrezza users.
Ideas are to include the following:
- Identifying the optimal Afrezza dose timings for a representative variety of meals and situations
- Optimising basal insulin strategies for Lantus, Levemir, Toujeo and Tresiba. Real-world experimentation to discover the pros and cons of each with Afrezza.
- There are several ways to use Afrezza – which is easiest, which is best without a CGM/Libre, which gives the best HbA1C?
- Country-specific importation information
- Following the approval plans around the world
- In-depth info for interested endocrinologists, and ways to communicate with each other.
