"I'll be 69 in February, as will my friend & we're both T1, I've had it for 50 years now, as for good control, in 1961 who knew how good it was. That 65 age limit is old news."

"Yes I know people with Type 1 who are older than 65. There is no real way of predicting and obviously the much better control you can maintain the better. But more and more people are reaching the 50 year mark with Type 1 all the time. I think for…"

Went there when I was first diagnosed, dietitian was OBESE and told me that if there is a box of cookies in her house she can eat a whole box, I was working at Walmart at that time and ate at the mcdonalds for lunch daily, she told me it was okay. The nurse never had time for me and kept cancelling appointments, saw a social worker there and she asked me if I was depressed. Mind you that was ten years ago, things may be dif, and probably dif CDE's. Totally a waste of my time, the dietitian didn't even tell me how to
count carbs, how could I take a seriously obese dietitian seriously anyway? Hypocrite! I learned more from current dietitian, she spends as much time with me as needed, gives me free stuff to try, including test strips, I just want to know if all dietitians stick to the same regime for all patients. I am being referred to a new endo, and nurse educator, but keeping same dietitian, out of the four others I seen, she is the only one that helped me make sense and understand how to carb count. Youville was a HORRIBLE experience for me, but like I said that was ten years ago, things change, maybe better now, hopefully for all those patients going there!
