Hi Debbie
What is the life expectancy of a diabetic?  I've always heard something
about 10 years shorter than a non-diabetic.  I was dxd @ age 5.  I am now
going on 49 come April, so I've had it for 43 yrs.  Does that mean I'm 11
yrs past my life expectancy?  Whoopee!  I always thought I was doing
something right!!!  ;)

I'll be pumping for the first time this month on my new Animas IR1200.
Thanx everyone for all the info!
