In this blog, we focus on a game-changing component of her diabetes toolkit: inhalable insulin, Afrezza.

A New Chapter in Diabetes Care:

Type 1 diabetes required Danica to rely on insulin injections for over a decade. Then came Afrezza in 2014—a breakthrough inhalable insulin that revolutionized her diabetes management.

The Afrezza Advantage:

Afrezza was a pivotal moment for Danica, resolving long-standing issues with liquid insulin absorption. It provides fast, reliable blood sugar control and allows Danica more freedom and flexibility in her daily life.

Benefits At a Glance:

  • Convenience: The small, discreet inhaler fits seamlessly into Danica's active lifestyle.
  • Customizable Dosing: Afrezza allows precise adjustments, enabling Danica to fine-tune her insulin regimen.

Managing Side Effects:

Like all medications, Afrezza has side effects. For Danica, a consult with her healthcare provider helped optimize her dosing regimen and minimize issues like coughing and hyperglycemia.


Afrezza has empowered Danica to live a fuller, healthier life while effectively managing her diabetes. However, it's crucial to consult your healthcare provider to assess if inhalable insulin is right for you.
