On January 27, 2006, the FDA approved Exubera, Pfizer's inhaled insulin, for sale in the US.
Several other companies are developing inhaled insulin. In use, inhaled insulin replaces fast-acting insulins such as NovoLog, Apidra, or Humalog to cover carbohydrates eaten at meals. You will still need to take long acting insulin, such as Lantus, through injections.
Many studies have been conducted on inhaled insulin, and in general the study participants felt positively about the product. However, since we last asked about inhaled insulin in July 2005, the interest level has dropped significantly -- from 24% reporting "Yes, I can't wait" to just 14%. Twice as many people -- 30% versus 15% -- now report worry about lung problems.
