In the year 1915, six years before the discovery of insulin, diabetes patients were starved to treat their diabetes. The starvation lasted a few days until the urine contained no sugar. Then a carefully structured diet was applied. The diet was low in carbs, and high in fats. The link below gives a lot of details, including several case histories that show how effective the diet was, Very impressive!!

That is quite interesting. I wondered why there would not be a liver dump in that time. I enjoy fasting from time to time. Maybe I should revisit that thought.

The results seem very conclusive.. Great read… I am puzzled as to why this type of treatment never went mainstream. Could the diet be too much for most people to adhere to? We all could do a 3-4 day fast..
