Lilly and Novo Nordisk are the primary producers of insulins in the world.
Making Insulin from animal pancreases is a loosing proposition. Under an
agreement with University of Toronto they cannot charge more than the
production and packaging costs Smaller companies lack the technology to make

Lilly). Never tried inhaled insulin but a type 1 female tech in our lab used
it but was not able to measure the absorbed dose accurately she is now a
pumper. spot
