Had Type 1(before the name was thought of) since 1939. My father was a doctor so I was diagnosed early-age 7. On pig insulin straight away. Eventually became a Dr myself at St Thomas's London and became specialist Haematologist. Retired 1989. 2 hip replacements. Coronary bypass 2010.
Still going strong.
