For Diabetes, Type 1 "The best for a diabetic type 1. IT's better than a needles four times a day. Now.it's only once a day!! I think it's worth every penny. I would pay even if my insurance doesn't cover it. I went to alot of Doctors to get it. Most said no,but I kept trying. IT was worth it!!! DON't get it if you LOVE needles!!"

For Diabetes, Type 2 "Biggest problem is that dosing is too erratic. Can't be dosed like typical injectable insulin. Unusable in my case with a cold or other respiratory infection. Although it saves you an injection, it actually causes more finger pricks as you don't know if you are using a correct dose."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "Here is all I need to say: As a Type I Diabetic, as soon as I tried Afrezza I bought MannKind stock! Afrezza works like nothing else. No more sudden, high spikes from lattes and other problem foods. With injectable insulin, I previously rapidly spiked into the 220 - 350 range after my lattes. Then I would go low in 2.5 - 3 hours. With Afrezza, I stay flat in the 80-140 range and never go lower than 80. Afrezza is truly amazing. I highly recommend you ask your endocrinologist for a prescription. Do me a favor and go thru the painful insurance approval process: you will need to get a breathing test done and ask your endo to process a pre-authorization for you. That's it. MannKind has a co-pay card program you can use to offset your costs."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "Middle of the road so far. Agree that this is expensive. I am using with pump therapy to counter those quick spikes after a meal and combine this with a normal or extended bolus. Overall A1Cs range from 5.9% - 6.4% and this is being used to fine tune."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "All the positive reviews on here are written by paidpeople and MNKD shareholders. Afrezza isn't being prescribed because it's an expensive drug with unknown long term effects on the lungs. Proceed with caution"

For Diabetes, Type 2 "I feel great since starting Afrezza three months ago. You get so used to the lows and the brain fog from high doses of the long-acting injections that you forget what it feels like to feel normal. I cut down my basal and now I only get what I need, I haven't had a low or even felt one coming on in months. I've lost 5 lbs and got back the stamina I had 20 years ago. Starting Afrezza changed my life."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "I'm impressed with the change I have seen since using Afrezza. I have been using it for ~4 months. I dropped my basal dose down and I feel 30 years younger. I used to get frequent highs and lows before, I often felt scatter brained and/or sluggish, now gone! I used to have bad erectile dysfunction, I won't get into the details, but since starting Afrezza, I haven't had any problems anymore. I feel better than I have in years. You take for granted that its normal to feel that way until you don't anymore. I wouldn't give this stuff up for a million dollars."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "Those who are complaining that this is not working are likely Afreeza's competitors. I'm 6ft, 170 lbs well and reasonably fit. I've genetic type-2 diabetes (every male member in my family has it). Was on metformin but body started to develop resistance towards the drug. I hate needles, so Afreeza was god-send for me. I took a simple spirometric test and was prescribed the drug. This drug is phenomenal. One cartridge is 4u, I typically need 4u along with regular food and I'm all set. Blood sugar is within normal levels within the next 90 mins. Please don't spread bad news if you are a competitor. You are playing with people's lives here."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "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."

For Diabetes, Type 2 "Where do I begin? The product is extremely expensive and dosing is erratic. One meal I need 4 units and the next I might need 8 (did I mention this stuff isn't cheap?). Causes a nagging cough (you are inhaling a powder into your lungs). Long term side effects on the lungs are unknown at this point (lung cancer noted in a couple of patients using Afrezza). Not worth the hassle nor the money"

For Diabetes, Type 1 "Afrezza is truly a remarkable therapy. My levels are flat, my post prandial highs are done away with. It seems to mimic the pancreas and gets into my system fast and expires within an hour. My energy levels increased, I use it with my basal insulin and I have never felt as healthy in my life. I have better feelings in my hands and feet too which was unexpected but welcome. I am based in the UK currently and cannot get it here. This is a huge disappointment as injectable insulin is so inferior."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "These reviews sound like stockholders either pumping or bashing. Mannkind is the company that developed it not sanofi. Sanofi partnered with mannkind to market and distribute afrezza. I am not a diabetic so I can't speak to its effectiveness but if I had a choice between a needle or inhaler it would be inhaler hands down."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "Thanks to Sanofi for giving me such a great product. Its doing miracles. NO MORE NEEDLES - this is much much better than traditional insulin. I have been using it for more than 6 months and I absolutely love it. I would highly recommend my diabetic friends to talk to your doctor about this. the only down side if you should have good lungs- no cancer etc . I am super excited . Wish you all luck."

For Diabetes, Type 1 "Afrezza is magical. It works so well there are no hights.I can use it at public places without use of needles. It delivers insulin directly to blood and is rapid acting. Insulin molecules are used here to mimic the pancreatic insulin. My overall health improved a lot and I feel much better. The bad reviews with single one liners can you please explain why it did not work for you unless you are trying to propagate negative energy - please describe your problem."
