Hi, and welcome!

I was diagnosed T1 when I was just about 53 - what a shocker, huh?

It probably goes without saying, but there are not guarantees...some people adhere to a stict control regimen and develop complications and some people are not well controlled but never develop complications.

I've tried to maintain my A1c under 6.0. This past holiday season excepted, I generally eat low(er) carb, and try to exercise every day hiking, exercise biking and gardening. I've found that aside from insulin shots and finger stick tests, my life continues as before diagnosis - my husband and I still spend several weeks every year canoeing in Canada, we entertain frequently, and enjoy heading out for Date Night every week. I do not spurn restaurants - I can always find something low carb!

Hope this helps a little. Let us know how you're doing.
