I am still looking for others who were diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes later in life. As I have said before, I was diagnosed at the age of 61, and it seemed to have happened over night. The only thing my Endocrinologist will tell me is that it happens. I know that Type 1's are born with it, but it can also be triggered by a virus or a chemical of some kind. She says that I just had a "Honeymoon" period for 60 years. I am just really confused and concerned. I have lots of questions, and would really like to find others who were diagnosed later in life. I would really like to hear how they became diabetic at that time in their lives; what was told to them about it happening at that time.
