Hello All, I am new here and just newly diagnosed this week. I am 51 yr old female. My biggest fear is that I will die early from this disease. I have a 20 yr old autistic son who I take care of 24/7. I need to be here for him. If I do everything the doctor says can I live to be in my 80's and 90's? Please tell me the truth! I'm not afraid of dieing BUT I am afraid to die and noone be here for my son. Allso i was told by the lady who took my blood that they would try a diet first but he is putting me on metformin I am very confused. Thank you for any and all help! God Bless!
