Great Job Janice! I am working on 67 years and still have some issues occasionally. Wow isn’t technology (meters, pumps and cgm) very helpful. I am enjoying life in Florida and expect many more years.

Good for you Rosemary, keep running.

Are we all aiming for 125 years? How many of us over 50 are there anyone know? Ps: Roger what is your secret? Just curious Bye Jan

No secrets, just had a Mom who spoiled me but left me with good habits and attitude. Now, my wife does a great job helping me to eat properly and keep up with my procedures.

Roger, I wrote a post called “how I eat what I want” and that’s what I do. No diabetes in my eyes, kidneys etc, just in my blood. Funny it works for me, I treat my body as if it is normal, take my insulin as if my body was doing it. Thanks for the input. Bye Jan Ps: Tell your Mom and Wife they are doing and have done a great job. Did find out that if I keep my BS above 140 no neuropathy!!!
