What is Longevity in Diabetes?

Have you had type 1 diabetes for over 50 years? Do you know someone who has?

Before 1921, type 1 diabetes was a fatal disease. After the discovery of insulin in this year by Banting, Best, Collip, and Macleod at the University of Toronto, those diagnosed with type 1 diabetes no longer had to fear their disease. With the help of insulin they could lead happy, healthy, and productive lives.

We recognize the great accomplishment of living with type 1 diabetes for over 50 years and we realize that there is a great deal to learn from your successes. Help us help future generations by sharing your story and inspiring others to do the same.
