Diabetic patients, with proper management, can live near-normal lifespans.

Type 1 diabetics may have a life expectancy 10-15 years shorter than average.

Type 2 diabetics, with lifestyle changes and medications, can approach normal life expectancy.

Diabetes-related complications like heart disease can impact life expectancy.

Managing blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure can reduce cardiovascular risks.

Healthy habits like balanced diet and exercise positively affect life expectancy.

Regular monitoring and treatment adherence are crucial for longevity.

Ongoing advancements in treatment offer promising prospects for longer lives.
