We are elated to see the celebration of Sir Frederick Banting’s birthday (born November 14, 1891) by Google as their Google Doodle of the day! Without Sir Banting, our most effective form of diabetes maintenance (i.e., insulin therapy) would not exist.
In 1921, Sir Banting began his work on the importance of insulin in combating diabetes. Within a year or so, he successfully began treating diabetics with insulin.
In 1923, he was then awarded a Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine.
Medilync thanks Sir Frederick Banting for his life-saving discovery!
