Hi, folks. My friend’s kid has been diagnosed with diabetes. His kid is 13 years old and I cannot describe you how good kid he is. I am sorry that this is happening to him. What is the average life expectancy for diabetics? Can anyone tell me something more about this? I would appreciate it.

Hello. Diabetes can indeed be a difficult diagnosis for a kid or a teenager. It changes life from upside down in this sensitive period. I am not sure about the life expectancy. Some people even say it can reduce life for 20 years. However, it is better to diagnose this disease before the age of 15 than after. Prognosis is much better in that case. Your friend should consult an endocrinologist for more details. I hope this helps. Bye!
