I am not an adult, I am a minor, and I did not do any and I would not think of doing it since that is why I am on a diet and I take great care of myself.
I do not like it here. I do not like it there. I do not like it anywhere. I’m praying this never has to happen to me. I religiously monitor my sugars and A1C to hopefully avoid this.
I have had T1D for 54 years. I used to be smug about the fact that I am so otherwise healthy, had 2 normal pregnancies, ran a marathon, low A1c but lo and behold, I suddenly developed chronic kidney disease about 2 years ago and certainly would consider a transplant if it ever comes to that. Have already asked family members about donating a kidney. My uncle, with T2 died from kidney failure after years of dialysis, I really don’t want to go there.
I am grateful for the understanding T1D has in comparison to epilepsy and numerous other conditions. 120 yrs ago T1D was a fatal disease. Thanks to research a specific cause and the medicine to control it was found. I hope that my body does not suffer permanent complications of this disease before research finds a way to fix it completely.
If you are an adult with T1D, have you ever had a kidney transplant? If so, how old were you at the time? Cancel reply

My dad, with T1D, had a Kidney transplant when he was 65, it lasted about 18 months and he was back on dialysis. He died at age 71, that was 20 years ago. I presume that matching, anti-rejection drugs and the entire procedure have improved.
