Keep 'em coming!

I was diagnosed with T1D last month and this podcast has been so calming, so supportive, and so informative. They take tough topics and make them light and palatable. I always leave more optimistic then before. Thank you!

Insulin resistance

If you haven’t presented this topic before, it would be helpful for those who give short acting insulin injections with every meal. As I’ve gotten older (almost 50 years with T1) I find the action time to increasingly be unpredictable. 10 to 60 minutes to never, as if I never gave the shot. Obviously this makes timing of meals difficult. Doesn’t matter where I inject and I rotate sites regularly. Doctor has examined my injection locations regularly and finds no anomalies. Any insights for the age factor?
