Breathe In 

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.

Wow. Had no idea that our lungs had so much intricacy. I hope this new insulin works for you, dude!

A tennis court?! Holy smokes!! That's amazing.

I haven't tried it yet, but I've heard from many who love it. Your comment about your lungs makes me think of something I heard Aaron Kowalski from JDRF say during a talk one time. He mentioned the concern about insulin not belonging in our lungs and his reply was that insulin doesn't belong in our subcutaneous tissue, either! That remark made me smirk because we don't think about that too often, do we.

Keep us posted, brother G! Good luck!

Definitely not on Afreeza. But that doctor of yours seems awesome. You have a good reason to trust him on this.
