my boyfriend was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 when he was 15. he is now 20 and he says he is gonna get really sick soon? is that true? what's his life expentancy? when will bad simptoms starts showing up? Im really worried :( any advice ?
He does not have to get "sick." He needs to manage his diabetes, check his blood sugar, and take insulin as necessary. He needs to watch his diet and be careful with alcohol.
He can live a normal life but again, he needs to manage this, every day.
Hope it helps.
