How Old Were You At Diagnosis?

(Yaffa) #201

1 year ago at age 66. Guess I’m still a bit of a juvenile.

(Bella) #202

I was diagnosed just a month ago and I’m 17 yrs old as well. I can seriously relate to feeling out of place in a pediatric hospital lol.

It was in 1998 at the age of 7

29 yrs old, thought that was unusual

(Roseann) #205

I was 18 months old. But I was also diagnosed with several other auto immune disorders at the same time. The T1 Diabetes is one of the hardest ones to deal with though, especially being a brittle T1 Diabetic.

Eva was diagnosed with Epilepsy at age 4, Celiac at age 8 and T1 at age 13, just 3 months ago. These are all “invisible” challenges and friends are surprised when they hear how much she has been through.


dx at 9 1979. Back when we got to pee on a stick and match the colors to know what your blood sugar range was.

Fun Times! :slight_smile:
