Inhaled Insulin at Mealtimes May Soon be Possible

separator It may soon become possible to take an inhaled form of insulin as your mealtime dose, rather than an insulin injection. Recent research showed that inhaled insulin helps reduce participants’ blood sugar levels and their hemoglobin A1C results. In other words, inhaled insulin appears to be effective at helping to reduce high blood sugar after meals. 

This doesn’t mean that inhaled insulin can replace injections completely, but it may be possible to eliminate the mealtime injections. Inhaled insulin is subject to approval by the Food and Drug Administration, which is currently reviewing recommendations.
