Readers:

I have another doctor's visit tonight. I'm hoping for more 
great news on the weight-loss. I'm keeping my fingers 
crossed. 

I'm excited about Spring. Spring brings me thoughts of 
exercising in the outdoors and getting all the fresh air 
I can handle. So here's to Spring. May it get here as soon 
as possible. 

Regards,
Steve

    Inhaled Insulin Safe, Effective Over Long Term

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A new study shows that inhaled 
insulin is safe to use and effective for up to 2 years in 
people with type 1 diabetes. 

There has been concern that inhaled insulin might cause a 
deterioration in lung function. Dr. Jay S. Skyler from the 
University of Miami and colleagues looked into this, and 
other issues, in a study involving 582 adult patients with 
type 1 diabetes. They were randomly assigned to inhaled 
insulin or injected insulin for a 2-year period. 

The researchers report in the medical journal Diabetes 
Care that there were declines in lung function in both 
groups, but the declines were consistently larger in the 
group treated with inhaled insulin. 

However, in both groups, lung function dropped by less than 
2 percent, and this occurred within 3 months of starting 
treatment and did not deteriorate further for up to 2 years.

Side effects were about the same with both treatments, the 
report indicates, but the incidence of cough was higher 
among those treated with inhaled insulin (38 percent) than 
among those treated with injected insulin (13 percent). 

Both groups kept their blood sugar levels under control, 
and the overall occurrence of too-low blood sugar was 
similar with both treatments. Episodes of seriously low 
blood sugar levels, however, were less common with inhaled 
insulin treatment, as was weight gain. 

"Inhaled insulin is effective (it works) and does not have 
major safety issues associated with it (at least for 2 
years)," Skyler concluded in comments to Reuters Health 

"Many additional studies are underway, including longer 
duration for safety and comparisons with rapid-acting 
insulin analogs," he added.
