Health Tip of the Day!

Type 1 diabetes, which used to be called Juvenile Diabetes, was a death sentence for children until Canadians, Dr. Banting extracted insulin from animals and a miracle occurred. Insulin, however is not a cure for type 1 diabetes. We are still waiting on a cure.

This is known as one of medicine’s most incredible moments. In 1922, at the University of Toronto, scientists went to a hospital ward with children who were comatose and dying from diabetic keto-acidosis. 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. One by one, all of the children awoke from their diabetic comas. A room of death and gloom, became a place of joy and hope. Thank You Dr. Banting and Dr. Best!
