I have had type 1 diabetes for 45 years, I am 47 years old.
I have been on a pump for about 11 years.

welcome :) wow, you have lots of experience there. I'm sure you'll enjoy being here and sharing with us. Keep us posted on how you're doing on that pump. I'm type 2 on insulin, although injecting with pen and not pumping.

Hello, and welcome! You must be doing very well to have had T1D for so long. In 5 more years you will be eligible for the Joslin medal, if you are interested.

I was diagnosed in 1945, when I was 6, and am very healthy after 65 years with T1D.

Please join the discussions and share your experience and knowledge.

Richard

Joslin Metal?

I have never heard of a Joslin Metal. What is that all about?
I have had some mild retinopathy. But generally I remain in fair shape.
