Coongratulat I ns, Claird!!!- I love when I see so many of us living a long, healthy life with T1. In October I'll be starting my 50th year. Also no complications that slow me down...eyes, kidneys and heart all fine. No neuropathy, either. A1c was 5.8 for last 6 months. Stay active and healthy and we'll be here when they find a cure. keep up the good work!!

Thanks to everybody! Just brought in my 40th year (it's just after midnight here in Indy) with a low of 58. I'll take that over whatever it was 40 years ago that landed me in the hospital for a week. It's so awesome to think how far technology has come since then. Honestly, I'm surprised I'm alive with all of the hypoglycemic seizures I had as a kid. Things are great now.****last A1c was 5.7 Next one in a few weeks.****DEFINITELY beats the alternative!!! The 2nd****I wish I was 20 again! Thanks๐Ÿ˜‰****WOW! You're doing awesome. I'm impressed
