"Users claim it is an entirely different type of product, and claim less hypos using Afrezza but I did note that one must dose half before eating and the rest after. So you are dosing twice for every meal. This is what might prevent lows. Because the…"

"Your concern is warranted and a good balance to my position. I like your "dancing with death" metaphor regarding our use of insulin. This is a reality I wish more people in the general public understood. Especially people that think we may…"

"Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited about the product as well, but I can see the speed having its downside. I kind of see the whole insulin thing as us dancing with death. Insulin has the potential to kill us if we take too much (or not…"

"I really would like to see the studies that MannKind did to satisfy the FDA panel. Hypoglycemia must have been a concern as any trial with insulin addresses dangerously low BGs. If the panel detected some significant risk regarding hypoglycemia that…"

"The curve has a closer resemblance to a normal insulin response, but it isn't triggered in the same way and our body's glucogon response (if remaining) isn't going to be normal. So I don't think it isn't safe to assume that…"

Terry replied to Diabetes News and Interest's discussion 'FDA Panel’s Surprising Approval of Afrezza Sends MNKD Stock Soaring'
"Scott - Your concern makes sense. If the insulin is so fast and we overdose, could the fix keep up with super fast insulin. Have you read the thread I cited above? Short-timed TuD member, AfrezzaUser, stated several times that exact dosing was not…"

"Well done, Manny. As a T1D I don't suffer from needle phobia and I don't understand a fear that could keep me from taking a medication that seriously reduces the risk of long-term complications. Yet many of T2 brothers and sisters are…"

"I'm excited about the product, BUT I'm concerned about what one does when an overdose of this stuff causes a hypo. Yes, there will be fewer hypos, but with it hitting twice as hard with a peak at 12-15 minutes, the lows will be harder to…"
