Newsletter for 04/08/15

Friends,

Fun Fact: Diabetes was one of the first diseases ever described with an Egyptian manuscript from c. 1500 BCE noting a propesenity of those with the condition for: "too great an emptying of the urine". The first described cases are believed to be of type 1 diabetes as Indian physicians around the same time calling the condition "madhumeha" or "honey urine", noting the urine would attract ants.
