The Miracle of Insulin

Have you ever stopped to wonder what a miracle insulin is? Before 1922, the death rate from type I diabetes was 100%. It wasn't until 1922 when Frederick Banting discovered insulin that hope arrived. Can you imagine that? 1922! That was not that long ago!

As doctors, we take insulin for granted. Right now, I'm going through the book The Discovery of Insulin by Michael Bliss. It's a great read! Full of suspense and intrigue! It's amazing how far we have come since the early days of Frederick Banting's discovery.
