hi,several inhaled insulin products are under development. If these products receive marketing approval, the pulmonary delivery of insulin may offer patients with diabetes an alternative to repeated insulin injections.
General & Family Physician Dr. Gautam Das's  Response
Hi.Inhaled insulin has been developed but got poor response as the blood sugar controlling aspects was below expectation, however recently twice a week insulin has been sucessfully tested in the clinical trials and hope it will give some relief to the insulin users.

hi man,insulin that can be taken by an inhaler is under development. It promises to free diabetics from multiple daily injections, but there has been concern that it may be difficult to control the dose accurately enough so that neither too much nor too little is given. Recent research shows that reliable dosing is no more a problem.
Diabetologist Dr. Amit Rajput's  Response
Inhaled insulin was just a meal-time insulin. But it would also require additional basal insulin by routine method.

Inhaled Insulin showed promise while development, but it was withdrawn due to side-effects.

@hirenbhai gandhi Your mother needs hospital admission, insulin and ophthalmologist's opinion.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
