Only 9% for me. I'm 64 and was diagnosed at 58.
Same here Cinderfella. Age 52 with Type 1 almost 26 years.
One of the "lucky" ones here. Turning 51 next month, diagnosed summer 2012. 1%.
They suspect I had had it for a longer but indeterminate time beforehand.
Still learning. As I told the diabetes experts during my visit in November, "I have become my favourite science experiment". Lemonade from lemons.
Good attitude, nwt...and nice to find someone in my percentage group!
Not so long for me. 5 years diagnosed at age 38. Just under 12% of my life.
66%, dx@ 16, now 45. Did I do the math right? I did Jen's the same way and got her number. It seems like a long time though. I was thinking 1/2 and was like "oh, wait..."
50 % as type 2. Now 65; diagnosed in the 80's.
I believe here was some earlier data in 70's indicating pre-diabetes but diagnostic tools un clear then.
Not interested in bragging rights. Don't need em.
