Woman Is Type 1 for 80 Years

The lady in the link below is said to be the longest surviving female T1 diabetic in the world. She lives in New Zealand and has been T1D for 80 years. I know there are several males who have been T1 more than 80 years. I wonder why there is only one female with that distinction. There is a lady in upstate NY who has been T1 for 79 years. You can find her on Tudiabetes.org.
