Re: [IP] long term diabetes folks

Sheesh  Bill...that was an encouraging post...

<...."those diagnosed before 1945 are DEAD.>

I recall reading a book about diabetes in the early 1960's that gave
average lifespan for what was then called "Juvenile" diabetes as 10
years after diagnosis.  
I past that 10 year mark in 1967 and the 40 year mark in 1997  and now
have been IDDM for 42 years and have NO PLANS on dying anytime soon!!!
