First, forgive me if this sounds morbid. Not trying to freak anyone out, just curious. I've been a type 1 for 39 years. When diagnosed, my life expectancy was 38 years and my parents were told that children and employment were out of the question. But I have 3 kids and run my own business. Soooo . . .
I am looking for statistics, such as successful births for type 1 females diagnosed late 60s early 70s, current medical stats for type 1s of that age range, etc. I am not having any damage, eyes and kidneys are good, but I feel awful most of the time. Just wondering what others like me are dealing with. And although individual stories are great, I really want to know as a whole what type 1s of my age are faced with.
Thanks for any information you can give!
