Many T1 Diabetics Have Eye Protection


Many of the Joslin medalists, with type 1 diabetes for at least 50 years, have been found to have protection from diabetic retinopathy. I may be one of them since my ophthalmologist has been saying for many years that I do not have any diabetes related eye damage after 66 years of T1D. It is hoped that further study of a small subgroup of the medalists will "lead to a means to prevent or slow the progression of diabetic eye disease".

  2. Just curious, you mention in another post that your were beginning to suffer from retinotherapy before you gained great control on the pump. If this is the case, do you mean some diabetics can be safe from retinotherapy if they have great control. Where as, others may have great control yet still develop retinotherapy?
