Google Doodle celebrates Sir Frederick Banting's 125th birthday
Millions of people around the world suffer from diabetes, but until the 1920s there was no treatment for it.
Sir Frederick Banting was a Canadian scientist whose pioneering work using insulin to treat diabetes earned him the Nobel prize. He only lived to be 49 but on November 14 - what would have been his 125th birthday - Google has celebrated him with a commemorative Doodle.
November 14 is also World Diabetes Day.
Frederick Banting was born on November 14 1891 in Ontario, Canada. He served in the First World War despite initially being refused while in medical school for poor eyesight since the army wanted more doctors on the front line.
Sir Frederick got to work on looking into the matter further and in 1921 the University of Toronto gave him 10 dogs on which to practise. On one dog, the pancreas was removed, resulting in it getting diabetes.
On another test subject, Sir Frederick removed the dog’s pancreas but ground the pancreas up and created an injection. Giving the diabetic dog a few injections a day kept it healthy.
In 1922, a 14-year-old boy named Leonard Thompson became the first person with diabetes to be treated with insulin, and ended up recovering rapidly. Many other patients responded well to insulin injections.
Soon after the medical company Eli Lilling began producing large-scale quantities of insulin.
Today, insulin is produced by growing bacteria, although pig pancreases were used for a long time until the 1980s.
According to the World Health Organisation, 422 million people had been diagnosed with diabetes in 2014 and the global prevalence had risen from 4.7 per cent in 1980 to 8.5 per cent. However, around the world, half of those with diabetes are not diagnosed.
The WHO predicts that it will be the 7th leading cause of death in 2030.
There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 is when the body attacks the cells that produce insulin while Type 2 is when the body does not respond to insulin.
