- I have been a type 1 since I was five years old. I going on 55 years living with diabetes. I check my BS a least 8 times a day maybe more if I working outside in the heat. I can look at food and BS rises. I try to count Carbs. the best I can and take the appropriate amount of insulin. I have a tendency to run low if I not careful. Fast acting insulin takes up to 3 to four hours to lower BS's where it needs to be. I never miss taking my insulin. I do not have problems healing from cuts or abrasions.
