It's called

Exubera. I'm pretty excited about using it. The military base here literally picked it up on Monday, I had my appointment on Wednesday and just happened to ask. Last oct/nov it was approved by the FDA, but the military always waits some time before they pick up new meds. Except, of course, viagra. Fuckers. It's for some type I and type II diabetics that do not smoke or have asmtha issues though.

Here's a good link and a snippett.

Exubera® is approved in both the U.S. and the EU for adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Nektar developed the inhaler and the powder insulin formulation for Exubera®. Our partner, Pfizer, will be responsible for marketing and promoting Exubera® worldwide.
Exubera® is a rapid-acting, dry powder human insulin that is inhaled through the mouth into the lungs prior to eating, using the handheld Exubera® Inhaler. The Exubera® Inhaler weighs four ounces and, when closed, is about the size of an eyeglass case. The unique Exubera® Inhaler produces a cloud of insulin powder in a clear chamber visible to the patient. This insulin powder is designed to pass rapidly into the bloodstream to regulate the body’s blood sugar levels.
Exubera® is a result of an innovative partnership between Nektar Therapeutics and Pfizer Inc. We pioneered the product and developed the core technologies used for Exubera,® including the formulation and particle engineering for the insulin powder, the filling and packaging techniques for the insulin blister, and the Exubera® Inhaler with its components. Pfizer manufactures and sells Exubera.® Nektar supports manufacturing including powder processing for Exubera® insulin, and manufactures the Exubera® Inhalers.
As part of our agreement with Pfizer, Nektar receives royalties on sales of Exubera® by Pfizer and revenue for the manufacture of the insulin powder and the Exubera® Inhalers.
The burden of diabetes in the U.S. and Europe Nearly 21 million Americans and 48 million Europeans have diabetes.(*) Despite existing therapies for diabetes, millions of patients don’t achieve or maintain acceptable blood sugar levels. Complications from uncontrolled or poorly controlled blood sugar levels in diabetes patients can include heart disease, amputation, blindness and kidney failure.
In type 2 diabetes, which represents 95 percent of patients, the body does not make or use insulin well enough to manage blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes progresses over time, and eventually most patients will need to administer insulin to achieve blood sugar control. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not make insulin at all. These patients must take insulin to survive.

thanks for the info! he has a apt with his endo doc soon, I'll have him ask about it. right now he's supposed to take some after every meal and then before bed.. he only takes the one at night *sigh* And I can't even get him to take his BS readings since that's yet another time to stick yourself. I know, I've done it to try it and it SUCKS.. but it just worries me.

How have you felt now that you've been taking it?

Oh.. and get bizzay and make some babies! We need more since I refuse to contribute

I'm still waiting to take the class to learn how to use it =( I got a call from my doc yesterday, the nurse in charge is meeting the drug reps this week and she'll call me next week to set up a time. I'm waiting to get on it before we get pregnant. I'll let you know though =)
