In about 20 years you will probably reset your goal - 80 will seem awfully
young! - I'm sure you didn't mean your BG! LOL  There are some pretty spry
and alert 80 year olds and with today's advantages, you could well make it.
Elizabeth Hughes, one of the first to receive insulin in the early '20s,
died at age 74 (around 1987) of a heart attack. She didn't use insulin as
pure or quick-acting as we have! John Grant died in '96 and had DM for 74-75
years. (Roger C., jump in here!)
