How Insulin was introduced to the World?

November 5, 2019


How Insulin was introduced to the World? 1922 at the University of Toronto, the scientists
went to a hospital ward with diabetic children, most of them comatose and dying from diabetic
keto-acidosis. This is known as one of
medicine’s most incredible moments. Imagine a room full of parents sitting at
the bedside waiting for the inevitable death of their
child. The scientists went from bed-to-bed and injected
the children with the new purified extract – insulin. As they began to inject the last comatose
child, the first child injected began to awaken. Then one by one, all the children awoke from
their diabetic comas. A room of death and gloom, became a place
of joy and hope. Thanks Dr.
Banting and Dr Best!
