    The new Inhaled Mealtime Insulin Afrezza

    I have been seeing commercials, YouTube videos, and lots of chatter about the new Inhaled Insulin Afrezza. Those who have been lucky enough to get a prescription of Afrezza are calling it a complete game changer, no needles, significantly lower A1c, and little or no Hypoglycemia. But with all the great life changing success stories, it seems some Insurance companies are slow to cover it, and many Endocrinologists won’t prescribe it.

    my type 1 wife keeps nodding off

    hey guys, so my wife was diagnosed with type 1 about 6 years ago (due to cancer radiation damaged her pancreas). the problem is that during all hours, she nods off quite frequently. what’s confusing is that she will nod off even if her blood sugar is normal. she gets pretty annoyed when I point this out or try to help. what does this mean? is it dangerous? I’m starting to get worried as this is a daily occurance. what should I do? help..!

    Diabetes

    Here recently I've had an increase of urination...Especially at night. I seem to be thirsty more and have dry mouth especially at night and when I wake up. I'm tired more often even though I get 8 plus hours of sleep at night. Also, I'm hungry all the time and sometimes not long after I eat.
