Anthony Hightower has used Afrezza for the past two years. He credits it (along with a Toujeo, a newer basal insuin) with completely changing his T1D management. In addition to excellent numbers, Anthony shares what else Afrezza has to offer. He explains, he liked it so much, he went to work for Mannkind, the company that makes Afrezza. He and Stacey also talk about the challenges Anthony faced since his diagnosis as a teenager. He admits he spent 20 years trying to avoid thinking about diabetes and credits the online community & the Diabetes Unconference with saving his life.
