Diagnosed In June of 1958 at the age of five.


Regular and NPH.

Blood-glucose levels

Tests two times per day.

"I'm around 115 any time before I eat, so I can be in the normal range. I have insulin reactions almost every day. I think that's good, because it's a guarantee that I'm not too high."


Last one was 6.8%.


"When I eat meals, I will consume 80 grams of carbs, 32 grams of protein and 15 grams of fat. I eat more as necessary to offset the exercise I accomplish."


Tries to integrate exercise into life-does not have separate exercise schedule.
