The approval for Inhaled Insulin by the FDA is now going to get the "Madison Avenue Marketeers" going full steam probably with the support of some Diabetes organizations and hospitals/clinics. In reality, Inhaled Insulin is geared for those (Type 2 Diabetes) who have fears and hesitancy in taking insulin(injecting) for good Diabetes control. Dollars & Cents, it is a huge market, with about 90% of people with DiabetesType 2 as potential buyers. It will by all accounts be more expensive than vial insulin already available . In addition, it is not recommended for those who have asthma and other respiratory problems such as bronchitis. It is also not recommended or children.
This Fairy Tale, is but yet another method for taking insulin, nothing more and nothing less. Where are all the new products/inventions for Type 1 Diabetes? I'll answer that, "they are on the back burner, because Type 1 Diabetes is not as profitable as Type 2 and there is a greater monetary market potential and volume for healthcare as regards Type 2 Diabetes". This is another reason why we (Type 1 Diabetes) must be our "own Doctors" and never give up on ourselves. I have no fear injecting insulin. My big fear however is meeting up with mediocre healthcare personnel who know nothing about Type 1 Diabetes.
