Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ...

75 year Diabetic with complications has survival rate which is variable , because it totally depends on good glycemic control .

If he has good glucose control and is doing fine than survival can be up to 5 years provided kidney is not involved .

So variable survival rate .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please rate my answer as good service .

Thanks .

I am disappointed--I thought I would get much more information and possible statistics on survival rates. I did not get any information I did not already know.
