72 y.o. and I have type 1. For the last 2 years, when my sugar runs low, I’ve
been usually eating something sweet, waiting for about an hour, maybe a bit
more, and then coming back to normal activity. But before that, I could return
to activity in half an hour or even sooner. My doctor says it takes longer with
age to burn the insulin off. Can anyone explain to me what that means? I
thought it was because my digestion slowed down. Thank you.
