This year is insulin’s 100th birthday

Insulin was discovered by scientist Frederick Banting, along with Charles Best, in Toronto in 1921. So this year diabetes organizations are recognizing and heralding this important milestone, insulin’s 100th birthday.

As a member of the International Diabetes Federation’s Blue Circle Voices (that’s IDF’s people with diabetes group) I am part of their testimonial campaign, specifically answering the question what changes I’ve seen in my 49 years living with type 1 diabetes.
