    Past 100 if you take care of yourself. A change in your eating habits may even cure type 2 diabetes.

    Your lifespan will be shortened by 10 years compared to a non-diabetic person. At the same time, you have to watch the following such as sugar control, blood pressure control, cholesterol control, diet control, weight control, salt control, habit control (smoking, alcohol), and mind control (stress free life).

    A normal life time if they take their meds and fallow the directions of the doctors. IN YOUR CASE I HOPE NO LONG!

    They live until something kills them.

    CONTROLLED diabetes is NOT a deadly condition.

    UNCONTROLLED diabetes can cause deadly complications.  But even with uncontrolled diabetes, it is still usually several years before a health issue becomes bad enough to be deadly.  (Unless you manage to eat enough carbohydrates to run sugar levels high enough to cause a diabetic coma and die from that.)

    Someone with type 2 diabetes can expect a normal life span if they make the right life style choices about food and exercise and have regular check ups with their doctor to manage their diabetes.

    My maternal grandfather had type 2 diabetes since he was 60. He didn't give a f*ck about his disease. He never went to doctor since he was diagnosed. He ate anything he could. This made him become blind though but he lived up to 85 years, meaning he lived with uncontroled diabetes for 25 years.

    Diabetics can live long life specially if they control their blood sugar.

    I think this depends upon a person lifestyle. If an individual have been diagnosed with diabetes at 26, he should be mindful of eating healthy foods. He should also do a regular visit to his physician and laboratory monitoring.

    Diabetes does shorten life even if diabetics control their blood sugar they will die sooner than people who don't have diabetes.
