POST BRONCHITIS

A bout with Bronchitis which lasted for two weeks is finally over minus 10lbs of body weight because of not being able to or wanting to eat anything. I guess that takes me out of the "running" to be eligible to use Exubera (Inhaled Insulin). As I previously posted, "those with any respiratory problems such as Asthma, Bronchitis as well as Smokers are not candidates for Inhaled Insulin". Anyway, it was really created for those with Type 2 Diabetes who are afraid or do not want to use a needle with syringe to inject themselves for better Diabetes management/control. As we all know, in terms of "dollars & cents", Type 2 Diabetes is a larger cash flow market than Type 1 Diabetes which is about 10%. Another example of R&D being tipped in favor of those with Type 2 Diabetes since there is more money to be made.
The irony behind all this, is that Type 2 Diabetes is "PREVENTABLE". Type 1 DM is not.

I think by bronchitis they meant chronic bronchitis, not acute bronchitis, so you still may be eligible if you wanted to try Exubera. I am more excited about pumping though.

Hi Megan....Exubera will be very expensive and again it is really for people who are afraid of needles. 32G needles are no big deal(no pain). Pfizer said that any type of Bronchitis would cancel out those interested in "inhaled insulin".
