I just learned of Juvenation and decided to join after reading some thoughtful threads.
I'm 25 and was diagnosed with type 1 at the age of 10½ back in 1995. I've been on the pump since January 2009. I used syringes from 1995 to about 2001 and pens until 2009 (I tried the pump briefly back in 2003 but wasn't ready for it then). My last few A1Cs have all been in the 6 range and have never been higher than 7.8 at any point in my life.
Unfortunately, I learned a couple of weeks ago that I have an underactive thyroid, and I need to talk to my doc tomorrow regarding my latest additional blood results. I haven't had an underactive thyroid since my teens; back then, it resolved on its own without any treatment.
My mom, older half brother, and maternal grandmother all have type 2. There is a type 1 somewhere in my maternal line as well, but I think it's a distant cousin. My paternal side doesn't have anyone with either type 1 or 2 - lucky them! Pbbt! :p
