A Report On Type 1 Diabetes, 1900-1950, by Dr. Joslin

Dr. Elliott Joslin wrote the following article in 1950. It gives a report on Type 1 diabetes for the years 1900-1950. It is very interesting to be able to compare the now with the then while reading this article. Type 1 diabetics, and others, should find the article very interesting…rather startling too.

Seems the link is broken or expired Richard - but yes, would be interesting to compare today to 1900.

Interesting and fascinating stuff there!
The improvements made in life expectancy of T1's improved dramatically by 1950, but yet it still hangs on, and diabetic comas were all but eliminated.
