Study of Longevity in Diabetes (SOLID)Type 1 diabetes is a complicated disease requiring constant adherence to glycemic targets and meticulous attention and vigilance of blood sugar. Individuals with type 1 diabetes are living longer than ever before, yet very little is known about how this group can age successfully. The goal of this study is to characterize cognitive and physical aging, and predictors of successful aging and longevity in a cohort including more than 800 elderly individuals with type 1 diabetes, 200 individuals with type 2 diabetes and 200 individuals without diabetes.
