There is a major research project going on in Boston called the Joslin Medalist Study. Every participant has been type 1 diabetic for 50 years, or more. I have been type 1 for 65 years, and participated in the Study in 2009. They hope to find the factors that have enabled us long term diabetics to live so long without any serious complications. If found, that could lead to a treatment that could be used by young type 1 diabetics, so they could have long, healthy lives too. The Study is ongoing and is funded by JDRF and NIH.
