Re: [IPk] re :inhaled insulin



Hi

I did not see the program about the inhaler.
I guess after reading the reactions that you are much better of using a
pump.

Whenever someone has to take say 21 units I guess the best thing to do is to
use an insulinpen.
On my pump I should click 42 times... Takes a lot of time.
If you would have to carry several packets plus the inhaler it would seem
that we were going back to the times that we had to carry our syringe,
needles and  insulin.

I do agree that it can make life easier for some people and especially for
young kids who are afraid of needles.
