I am diabetic type 1 for 25 years. Have been working in OAP residential homes for a long time, and have never had a type 1 diabetic as a resident...... So I have got thinking...does anybody know of the oldest living person with type 1 diabetes over 25 years living with it. Obviously, I am worrying why I have never had anybody in the care homes, is it because we don't live that long? Does anybody know or is themselves the oldest living person with diabetes type 1 longer than 25 years?
