Same, more cautious: Diabetes treatment in the elderly is the same as anyone else: diet/exercise, medications and Insulin if needed. We worry about low blood sugar in elderly so the dose might start out lower and titration might be slower. Depending on the age and the amount of medical problems, we might also make the diabetes goal less stringent.
