Nice to meet you. Having renal failure must have been a Very scary time for you. I'm sorry that you had to go through that. I saw my Hubby's Aunt go through kidney failure also, plus she went blind. She only had Diabetes for 16 years.

I'm Happy that you were able to get a transplant. That's Wonderful to hear. You're Lucky that you have a supportive Family. That is Good that you are keeping a tighter reign on your blood sugars and blood pressure. I hope that you are able to enjoy your Life and your Family again.

Default Hello!

Welcome to our community! I hope your renal failure will be under good control soon. I have been Type 1 for 63 years and I am very healthy. If we have good control of our diabetes then we have a good chance of living a long, healthy life. Good luck to you!


I have been Type 1 for 73 years. My A1c is 6.2. I pump with the MM 630, and I am using the Dexcom G5.
