William Rounds, type 1 for 85 years

William Rounds was born in 1923, and diagnosed later that year, when he was 11 months old. He was a Joslin medalist and attended the medalist meeting in 2009. I did not attend that year, but I did attend in 2011. He was type 1 for 85 years in 2009. The link below gives an article about him. On the link page you will find the stories of 11 long term type 1 diabetics. The ADA magazine, the Diabetes Forecast, celebrated its 60'th anniversary in Oct, 2008. The magazine wanted to publish stories about people who had lived 60 years with type 1. If you scroll down the page you will find my story in the left hand column. William Rounds was on the cover of that issue.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Richard. It's always inspiring to read about those of you who have defeated diabetes by living a long and healthy life despite diabetes.
