The Discovery of Insulin

Author: Michael Bliss, 1982/2007, University of Chicago Press

The discovery of insulin, and it’s development as a life saving treatment for type 1 Diabetes, was a sentinel event in modern medicine. Prior to that discovery, the diagnosis of Type 1 or juvenile onset diabetes amounted to a death sentence. Michael Bliss’s award winning account of the way that insulin was first isolated and used to treat people with type 1 diabetes contains many moving anecdotes about the first patients treated with insulin, and tells the story of the quirky research team that discovered and developed insulin as a life saving therapy, and the impact of that discovery on patients dying from diabetes. Anyone with type 1 Diabetes should read this book.
