I haven't done the research, but I'm going to guess that diabetes is not sex specific. I'm going to guess the way that it works to destroy blood cells, limit oxygen to the brain, damage the heart, memory....how a person reacts to highs and lows...is pretty much the same in a man or a woman.
I have often wondered why they lie about their numbers. I always think that if he loves me, he will tell me the truth. The reality is that he almost always lies about his numbers. Especially when he wants to go out to eat!!! "Oh, I was only 105 this morning, we can go out for lunch!" Yeah, right!
And I will confess that I am the world's slowest learner. But at least I am still learning! LOL!!!
