Why glycemia range is different between man and woman? Sexual hormones? A 30 yo woman in menopause has the same range of a man of the same age? Thanks

In brief: Not sure it matters.

glycemic range meaning how much the sugar varies? certainly how much use (exercise) and how much sugar in and how much reserves will all factor. Men have more muscle mass so, more of everything and should have higher glycemic variability.
