hi.Iwasdiagnosed with type 1 in1988. Ilive in india & awareness abt diabetes was not much back then. anyway had a good 20 yrs with it & had a great life with marriage, a great kid & supportive family.somewhere along the way I let go& 2 yrs back was diagnosed with renal failure due to uncontrolled high blood pressure. have had a transplant 3 mths back. life is almost back to normal now& I m keeping a tight check on sugars & controlling BP with medication & yoga.
