From Mumbai, Maharashtra, India:

My brother was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a week ago. Does having type 1 diabetes affect an individual's lifespan or any other aspect of life (e.g., body energy, ability to perform in school, intelligence, stamina, etc.)?


How normal his life is going to be subsequently largely depends on how well he can keep his blood glucose close to normal values.
