From Tacoma Washington, USA:

Is there any research to suggest that the insulin inhaler may replace the pump? My daughter, 14, diagnosed a year ago, getting started on the insulin pump hopefully in the next month. Any reason to hold off?


First question: No. Second question: no. Best wishes to your daughter on her decision to start pumping!


Additional Comments from Dr. Larry Deeb:

To briefly elaborate: At present inhaled insulin is a bolus of insulin. Basal insulin (as injections) will still be needed.
