Afrezza is a rapid-acting form of human insulin that is inhaled through the mouth. Afrezza is used to treat type 1 or type 2 diabetes in adults. It is available in the United States since 2014.
Here are some reviews of the product:
Afrezza is nothing short of a miracle
“Since I was on the trials I put 6+ months but I have been back on Afrezza for about 2 weeks. Afrezza is nothing short of a miracle. I am a type 1 diabetic and my blood sugar average in the past 10 days has been 110. I have a CGM so I have had 2880 readings in the past 10 days. A 110 average equals to an A1C of 5.45. This is possible because Afrezza mimics the speed of a healthy pancreas. Afrezza starts working in only 12-15 minutes and works out of my system very quickly. This allows me to manage my glucose in real time without babysitting diabetes all day. Even if I do have a high I can knock my sugars back to 100 in a matter of minutes.”

I no longer spike high after a meal
“So far my experience is everything that I knew it could do...FASTER INSULIN is what we need and afrezza is here! Afrezza works in 12-15 minutes and todays meal time insulins (Humalog & Novalog) work in 45-60 miniutes...So I NO longer have the post meal highs. Having a higher blood sugar after every single meal long term does a lot of damage to ones body. Afrezza works right away and I no longer spike high after a meal. I used to be afraid to eat because I knew that my sugar would start to rise. Having a blood sugar that is high is only something diabetics would relate to and let me tell you this, I wouldn't wish is upon my worst enemy. Afrezza also leaves in the body in 45 minutes! Did I mention NO NEEDLES ?”
Makes my life much easier
“The simplicty of use and rapidity of action make my life on the road so much simpler. I have a job that forces me to be on the road and eating out a lot. This stuff is amazing. Less swings if my new Dexcom is to be trusted. I might daily or twice a day basal another go and see if I could loss the pump. From my early tests precise dosing less critical”
Transformed my life
“My doctor was reluctant to switch me from Humalog to Afreeza but did after I insisted I wanted to try inhaling over sc scares 4 times a day. After a simple spirometer blow test I got the green light. I learned to take my inhalation literally right before eating because Afreeza works that well. My doctor said its because my body does not need to break done the zinc first. After using Afreeza for 4 months I can honestly say this has transformed my life. I carry it with me so discreetly no more going to dirty bathrooms to inject myself if on a date. My A1C has dropped from 8.4 to 7.1 and I lost 12lbs my doctor say simply because I'm finally in control. Thank you Afreeza! I still have to take 12u of Lantus at bedtime but that's easy.”
