What exercise is recomended for a 93 year old female Type 1 diabetic,

I would ask my MD and/or an experienced professional trainer or the
like. You've got a lot of variables at play, and I wouldn't take advice
on this from people without the appropriate training.

I will say that my beloved former endo (he moved out of state) told me
that the only patients over age 90 he'd met were ones who walked
regularly. Your knee and hip issues might make that difficult, which is
why I say consult a professional.

Good luck!
