Longest Living Type 1? Who Knew?
Today's New York Times cover had a story about 2 diabetic brothers. click here for article While I cringed at learning that one is the oldest person to survive so many years with Type 1 (I didn't know it was so rare), it was never-the-less an encouraging article. The nod to hard work was well placed, and the optimism in tune. My younger brother was diagnosed at 7, and I at 16. I'm grateful to have been born later in the century, however, when blood testing and insulin pumps are available, and of course I hope to live to see a cure.
