Re: [IP] Study shows some T1's don't get complications

 If they've had diabetes for 50 years, I bet they all started on 1 shot a day,
and A1c and even glucose monitoring simply would not be available for any but
recent years. These are things that came in since I was diagnosed, and I haven't
made 50 years yet. Urine tests would be it, for the early years.
