Man Celebrates 85 Years of Living with Diabetes

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Bob Krause turned 90 last week, it was by virtue of an unflagging determination and a mentality of precision that kept his body humming after being diagnosed with diabetes as a boy.

A leading diabetes research center named the San Diego resident the first American known to live 85 years with the disease, a life that has paralleled — and benefited from — the evolution in treatment.

Krause's wife of 56 years, his family and friends were to celebrate his longevity Sunday with a party and a medal from the Boston-based Joslin Diabetes Center to commemorate his 85-year milestone.

He credits his diligent tracking of his body's chemistry, and becoming expert in the life-saving math that has kept his diabetes under control.
