I was a type 2 for 12 years before my pancreas gave up and stopped working. I’ve been on insulin since 2010 and became Type I last September. My doctor in 2005 said I likely have an autoimmune disease, and I think he was dead on 12–13 years ago.

I am sure my habits did not help me much. I guess we’re all different cases of circumstances.
