"Thanks Spiro. You went the extra mile and if that doesn't satisfy your doubters, I don't know what will. Fraser doesn't seem to understand that he doesn't have "THE ANSWER" for all T2's."

"Spiro, Welcome to the Fun House! As a 71 yr old T2 myself on Lantus and metformin I am talking to my PCP on Friday about getting on Afrezza so the more T2's who post on their experiences, both good and not so good, the better. Keep in touch. dw"

"Jenny, Thanks for your comments. Fortunately my PCP and Endo were fine with my low carb/high fat diet (modified based on your Diet 101 book). But when my A1c’s got back into the 6’s, I went on Lantus (at 8U right now). I told my docs no…"

"Jenny, Great to see you posting here again- I'll still visit your blog. I am a non-obese T2 on Met, Lantus and low-carb and going to see my PCP in a week to see about starting on Afrezza. Odds it will be awhile before it makes it on my…"

"As much as I admire Dr. Bernstein, I was shocked to hear him say (on his last Wed night webinar) that Afrezza was NOT for T1's and probably only for big, overweight T2's. And this was after having visited with two Sanofil reps. I think he…"

Dunewalker, Thanks, I was stunned by the quick attack from Jenny. I didn't come here to discuss stock, but rather share my progress and hopefully learn more about why it is happening. I had been encouraged by others to share my story here with other diabetics. Did I make my first post in the wrong thread?

Thanks, Spiro
