2006/059 New NICE guidance increases insulin options for some people with diabetes

NICE has issued guidance to the NHS in England and Wales on the use of inhaled insulin for the treatment of diabetes (type 1 and 2). 

NICE has recommended inhaled insulin for some people with type 1 or 2 diabetes who have either a severe needle phobia or serious ongoing problems with injection sites, making injections very difficult.   NICE has not recommended inhaled insulin for the routine treatment of type 1 or 2 diabetes.
