Controlling Blood Glucose Concentration and Diabetes

Notes on controlling blood glucose concentration and the treatment of Diabetes, Type One & Type 2.  

Also includes information about what each form of diabetes is and the separate ways it should be treated, as well as future cures and information about Banting and Best. 

Hope its all helpful!

Blood glucose concentrations in the body are monitored and
controlled by the pancreas.

Blood glucose levels are high after you have eaten a meal. This causes
the hormone (and protein) insulin to be released from the pancreas.
This causes the liver to remove any glucose…

Banting and Best, in the 1920s, were two scientists who made some
dogs diabetic by removing most of their pancreas. They then
extracted insulin from the pancreases of other dogs.
Many dogs died in the experiment, although the results meant that a
treatment was developed for a disease which has…
