Insulin inhalers

Q: I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 19 years, when I was studying for a Diploma course in Hotel Management Catering Technology from Rizvi College in Bandra, India. I was in the II year then. I have passed the 3- year Diploma course, but to my chagrin, I find that I cannot take up a good job in any good hotel when I reveal that I am a type I diabetic. What with so many medical advances, how is that nothing much is being done to help cases like mine. Though my parents have spent so much on my Diploma, I find I am unable to secure a good job which is causing depression and irritability in me. Can't the employers be publicly informed that if allowed to take insulin shots in time, young men like me could do as much justice to a job as any other person. At least I'm a hard working person and given an opportunity to work in such good hotels, I would do justice to the job. Please let me if there are any insulin inhalers in the market, or whatever is the latest information on avoiding daily insulin injections. Thanks.

A:1. It is unfortunate that discrimination is being done against diabetics but public awareness is being created. 2. So far inhaled insulin is not available though in the next one to one and a half years it may become available in India. Next online is oral insulin that may take another 5-7 years. Till these are available, insulin injection is the best option and you should be mentally ready to take minimum of two injections. These days pen-delivery system of insulin is almost painless. The aim is to control blood sugar to as mormal as possible even if more than two injections are required. Cheer Up!
