Rene replied to Sam I am's discussion 'Complications--not the common ones we are warned about....' in the group Type1 for 30 Plus Years
"Susan it looks as if we are both at 47 years but I was 25 when I was diagnosed. The Doctor told me to raise my children well and fast since I would not be around to see them grow up. He said I'd be dead before I was 50 so we had a big party for…"

Rene replied to Rene's discussion 'Things that are inevidable with Diabetes'
"Thanks, yes it is Charcot though my doctor spelled it differently. I am lucky not to have too many side effects but as I m sure you know it is hard work. My A1C has never been above 7, of course when I was first diagnosed there was no such thing,…"
