Just wanted to share this and have others chime in... I have a brother who has been type 1 for 30 years. The first 10 years his numbers were all over the place though he tried to manage as best he could. The past 20 years, he got an endo and really got tight control. You would think his first 10 years of horrible control would have had repurcussions but he suffered not one bit by way of complications.. Are there any here who have a similar story? His story gives me hope in that I can buckle down NOW and perhaps not suffer complications in the future from this disease.
