Hi I'm a recently diagnosed 28 year old female type 1. They told me I don't fit any real bill and I was called into a&e with the worst DKA the hospital had seen without symptoms....5 days later I'm out and have been told they need to treat me as a type 1 ...their understanding of what happened to my pancreas doesn't matter as it's shut down either way. I've googled everything...from health complications to life expectancy and I'm having real problems with the idea I'm going to lose 12 years of my life?! Recently married and really trying not to let the diagnosis affect my mental health. Any help with the whole mortality side of it? Are eye and kidney problems a 100% given or can I avoid these things?
