    39 but they reckoned I'd been diabetic for at least 15 - 20 years before that due to having retinopathy at point of diagnosis

    58, but they reckon that I had had D for 30 years prior, masked by other medical conditions and drug therapy. In Oct13 they changed their mind and confirmed T1 autoimmune, no great surprise as I have 4 other autoimmune conditions.
