hi there and welcome. I don't know anyone here who still takes 70/30, but if you click on Forum on the top banner, you can search the type1 discussions. let me know if you have any questions about our community.
Nope not common at all at that age! Like I said I took Type 1 at 10. There's a group here I think for Type 1's that were diagnosed later in life. Just check out our groups at the top of your page (by clicking on Groups) and you will see what's there. They are probably others you are interested in. Just click on them and then it will take you to their opening page read a little about them and then if you are interested click join and now your a member of that group. After you do that you can leave a comment to the group and there you will meet others in that group who have the same concerns as you.

I really look up to those out there who have had Type 1 longer than me, without them I might not be here now!
