Have a look at this cool online "museum" of diabetes:

Once again, Amy hit's a home run on this one. And Lipsie, the scrolling timeline format of the link may be hard to understand at first, but it is pretty cool.

What is not cool as JDRoberts said is there is so little known about something known about for so long.

It's funny you post this. Last week I was talking to my endo about stuff and we ended up talking about how diabetes is one of the oldest referenced, very common, most researched diseases around yet we still know next to nothing about it.

Thank you Amy, I always wanted to find this information out I just didn't know where to go for it. I really enjoyed reading about how diabetes was discovered. I was really amazed at how long ago it was discovered!!! Please let me know when you find out anymore information.
