More About Me
I am also an insulin dependent diabetic and have been since I was 52 years old. The doctors are amazed, as I basically have no side affects yet, and I am doing great in that department. My RS said it was unheard of to have diabetes this long and not have diabetic retinopathy, but I don't.
