I just started using Afrezza (inhaled insulin). Still not sure how well it is working. Has anyone else been using it? Good or bad experiences?

I have been using Afrezza only for T2 and in 7 weeks my A1C went from 6.4 to 6. June 12th will be 3 months. This past week the maker of Afrezza had a share holders meeting. Read this link.
