    Hi Carbs Roj

    Congrats and well done its all possible without to many problems.
    My sister started on 4 injections a day at 13 months old , she will be 60 in October and is now on a pump.

    I became diabetic at 34 and am now 65 on five injections a day.

    A family thing as mum at nearly 93 is on 2 a day and a tablet, dad died last year at 92 on tablets but his death was not diabetes related.

    Keep going Carbs Rok.

    Well done. I was diagnosed 1n 1975 and so far so good. Like you I was told there would be a cure in 10 years - still waiting.

    Have asked that this thread be locked now as over a year old, let someone else have the limelight and many thanks for all the kind comments.
