Even after all of this heart attack stuff and surgery mumbo jumbo, i am still having issues with my bg spiking after every meal. And now my meals are pretty tiny but I still spike. Sometimes I swear I just look at carbs and my bg spikes. The spikes are not as high as they used to be but still I spike. It sucks.
So my doctor thought it would be a good idea to try inhaled insulin. I asked him why he felt this would help. He said that our lungs have the surface area of a tennis court. Inhaled insulin can be absorbed at such a higher rate than a shot. He thought it may be a good way to curb some of those spikes.
I have only been using it a little while but I do like it. I have noticed that it does help those spikes. The thing is that I have to eat soon after I take it because of that absorption rate, I drop quickly.
Are any of you using Afreeza? What do you think? I am a little concerned about my lungs. Especially since I was a smoker all those years ago. But I trust my doctor.
He once told me, "I am your primary care provider and my job is to care for you." Having a team you can trust is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It took me a long time to find a doctor i could trust but now that I have one, I follow his lead.
