Why is the inhaled insulin a “dog”?The cost?
It works about as well as injectable insulin, so I’m supposing that’s what earned it the “dog” appellation.
“rejected by NHS advisers on grounds of cost”
Cost and NHS allege that it did not offer sufficient benefits over conventional insulin injections.
Saying this after EU approved it in January? I believe it’s more on the cost.
