INSULIN YOU INHALE AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MEAL.

Afrezza is the only rapid acting insulin available that can be inhaled. Other mealtime insulin options are delivered through injection. Afrezza can potentially save you about 1,000 needle sticks per year. * 

If you’re living with type 2 diabetes and working with your healthcare provider to improve your blood sugar control, he or she may prescribe a rapid acting insulin, also known as mealtime insulin. If you’re living with type 1, rapid acting insulin is already part of your daily diabetes management.

CONTROL HIGH BLOOD SUGAR FAST

By keeping your blood sugar levels in a healthy range through food choices, physical activity, and proper medications, you can avoid long-term diabetes complications.3

These complications can develop over many years and they all relate to how blood sugar (also called blood glucose) levels affect the blood vessels. Over time, high amounts of sugars in your blood can damage the body’s blood vessels, both tiny (microvascular) and large (macrovascular).4

A NEW WAY TO THINK ABOUT INSULIN

Afrezza insulin units are different than injected insulin units because Afrezza is inhaled and in powder form, while other mealtime insulins are in a liquid form and injected. Your healthcare provider will start you on a dose considered best for you.

Life is constantly changing and Afrezza can be adapted to your activities and schedule. Afrezza dosing should be individualized. This table can help with initial mealtime dose when converting. As you start your new therapy, get to know how Afrezza works for you and let your healthcare provider know your progress.

Using inhaled insulin can mean 1 less injection per meal which is ~1,000 less needle sticks per year.*
Afrezza can be helpful for people who have problems with needles or their injection sites.

HOW IT WORKS

Afrezza is insulin used at the beginning of a meal with an oral inhaler and one or more single-use cartridges. Afrezza cartridges comes in three doses: 4, 8 and 12-unit cartridges.

Your healthcare provider will give you direction on how to take Afrezza and help you find the right dose per meal for you. If you are switching from an injectable mealtime insulin to Afrezza, it is important to remember that Afrezza insulin units are different than injected insulin units. If you are not seeing the results you expect with Afrezza, contact your healthcare provider about changing your dose. 

If you require more than 12 units at a time, you can use multiple cartridges.
