Descripción del producto


"A consummate study in irony, in the classical sense of the dramatic unfolding of tragic consequences from apparently benign events." -- "British Journal for the History of Science"

Reseña del editor

One of medicine's most remarkable therapeutic triumphs was the discovery of insulin in 1921. The drug produced astonishing results, rescuing children and adults from the deadly grip of diabetes. But, as Chris Feudtner demonstrates, the subsequent transformation of the disease from a fatal condition into a chronic illness is a story of success tinged with irony; a revealing saga that illuminates the complex human consequences of medical intervention. ""Bittersweet"" chronicles this history of diabetes through the perspectives of people who lived with the disease. Drawing on a body of letters exchanged between patients or their parents and Dr Elliot P. Joslin and the staff of physicians at his Boston clinic, Feudtner examines the experience of living with diabetes across the 20th century, highlighting changes in treatment and their profound effects on patients' lives. Although focused on juvenile-onset, or Type 1, diabetes, the themes explored have implications for our understanding of adult onset, or Type 2, diabetes, as well as a host of other diseases that, thanks to drugs or medical advances, are being transformed from acute to chronic conditions. The tale of diabetes in the post-insulin era provides an opportunity for exploring the larger questions of how medicine changes our lives.
