As I got into my mid-30's, I found that if my blood sugar was too low - I had some trouble and that was new. When I was a teen and in my early twenties I was unstoppable, LOL (I expect that is pretty normal). So far, I still haven't needed the "little blue pills" or even considered them. My wife and I just welcomed our second son in April and there has been no trouble there... I think I'm more scared of eye damage because that requires surgery - the other... reportedly will only require some pills.
For me, I treat it like all my D related concerns - I do the best I can to manage my care and plan to be dilligent about any other care I may need. Now, I've only been diabetic for 26 years and I plan to have it a lot longer -so... I guess time will tell. I am sure it'll be a heck of an ego thumper if/when I find myself there but for now... life is good.
I don't know if I helped much...
