Default 67'th Diaversary

Yesterday, Sept 15, was my 67'th diaversary. Still no complications except for mild nerve damage. I hope the research being done on long term T1D's in Boston will explain why some of us are so lucky to have lived so long, and be so healthy.

Well done Richard.

Given my present age, I don't realistically expect to match your durability but you remain an inspiration to all us new boys - of whatever type - showing what can be achieved by attention to diet, exercise and general self discipline!

Here's to repeating the good wishes in another ten or twenty years

Thank you, friends!

Diabeticfootball, I don't have any "secret". I do the same things that many type 1 friends have done, but my routine seems to have worked better for me than it has for so many others. The research in Boston is attempting to find why us long term, healthy type 1 diabetics have been so successful. I participated in that research in 2009. The research is ongoing, and began in 2005. There have been almost 800 participants thus far.
