But the thought of free test strips and insulin was too tempting for me- and here I am! I think that inhaled insulin is way better than injected. I don't have to inject, just load up the machine and breathe it in.

I was just curious as to how people keep track of their blood sugars. In the old days, I had a binder that I would carry with me and enter in readings, before each meal.

I have this- dream, I guess- where I can put my readings into a big spreadsheet, and do all sorts of calculations, averages, etc., and perhaps even…

It would be super-interesting to see what other people here think about inhaled insulin. Why don't you start a discussion on the Forum section (perhaps under the Treatment category) about it, to see where other people stand on this.
