DIABETES PHOTO MUSEUM

The internet has scattered photo's from Diabetes pre-2000...but nothing organized. This group is basically to share photo's of Diabetes from yesteryear. Our Diabetes memories must not be forgotten!

The Dark Ages

The "days of old" Diabetes just flat out fascinates me. Is there really anything better in life than to see how far we have advanced over the years with diabetes care?...I think not. As I surf the internet, I see bits & pieces of Diabetes photo's and whatnot from years past but nothing I've found is really organized. Please share your photo including a brief description. (pre-2000) Photo's can be of anything having to do with diabetes during the particular time period.

*** WARNING- There are a few photo's in the Pre-1960's Diabetes area that show starvation caused by Diabetes. Please proceed with caution.

There are 10 very cool pictures of 40 years of devices at the Facebook page of Diabetes Daily. The specific photo album is called The History of Diabetes Technology.

I really want to thank all those who were diagnosed before 73. They made the road a little easier for me!

I have a question: Did someone know what was happening in World War 2 about European (from France, Belgium...) diabetics (type 1) who were using insulin from USA or under a licence from USA?

Sorry Danny no pictures , I had acceptance problems back then !!
Comment by Doris D on June 8, 2010 at 6:26pm
Hey Danny I would love to see those pictures too! As we all know I took Type 1 in 73 but didn't take any pics from that time. Didn't want to admit to myself I had diabetes but this is a GREAT idea! Where as I tried to be "normal" maybe some other took pics then and can bring back some memories for me!
