Insulin

Question from St Leonards, NSW, Australia:

I have heard of reports that the UK has approved a nasal insulin application, available in lieu of injections. Could you please give me any information or details on this?

Answer:

Not true, I’m afraid. There were reports on preliminary, and very small, clinical trials at the 1998 ADA meeting. It’s going to be some time before this is licensed for use but it does seem that progress is being made.
