Sept 10 was my birthday, 72 years old. Today (Sept 15) completes my 66'th year of T1. I am sill healthy and do not have any diabetes related complications, except for mild nerve damage. There had been a diagnosis of autonomic neuropathy, but that is false. My cutting down on my BP med to minimum dosage has almost eliminated my dizziness, and my BP is still good. I do not have symptoms of autonomic neuropathy now.
Working out at a gym 3 days per week has greatly increased my stamina and given me some extra muscle. I painted two sides of my house this summer. I know I will start to slow down one of these years, but I hope it will not be any time soon.
