Sir Frederick Banting may have passed away in 1941, but he’s still saving millions of lives today. Before Banting and his partners discovered insulin for therapeutic use, Type 1 diabetes was a death sentence. November 14th—Banting’s actual birthday — was selected as World Diabetes Day because his discovery changed the world. Join Beyond Type 1 in celebrating the man, the myth, the legend. Happy 126th birthday Sir Frederick Banting! The world thanks you!

  • Vanessa Gutierrez says:

    Happy birthday! Instead of making money off of his discovery, which has saved countless lives, he sold it to the University of Toronto for $1.00 to ensure that insulin could be available to all who needed it. I wonder what he would think about the lack of availability of this life support today due to the costs.

    Thank you for giving me life!

  • SAM says:

    I would like to emphasize that diabetes is not a disease.
    Even now generalizing the world is rich in people who are not aware of the term to its meaning, far too standardized.
    it is increasingly important to create unions and new friendships in defeating these unconscious barriers.
    Let’s thank Banting for creating the famous water-based substance: Insulin is now considered to be the most important life-saving drug for us diabetics.
    Through good self-awareness and will you can achieve excellent results in therapeutic management by living serenely.
    Everyone is constantly evolving and is led to improve.
    In conclusion, I believe that diabetes has directed me to a more concrete and truthful vision of those around me, as well as making improvements in my own person in knowing how to relate to and destruct.
    I share the constant scientific research and of course there are no reasons to hesitate to believe in us.
    Life is unstable and built to surrender, but to aim to reach certain goals, not influencing anyone, approaching their real personality

    I am 10 years old and was diagnosed last year, 3 days after my 9th birthday. My parents didn’t know what was happening to me and when they found out, I spent 4 day as at the hospital with DKA. My mom and my dad and my little brother take good care for me but is struggling to maintain and keep the blood sugar on range. Missing days of school, sometimes I can’t do the same I used to do because I feel tired all the time or my lows and highs. I hope for a cure. Insulin means life to me. Thank you all who tried to find a cure for this invisible disease. Carla Mia

    Thanks, Sir Banting – because of the discovery you and your partners made, my father, myself and many other extended family members are able to live with Type 1 much more easily…had we been born prior to that, living at all would have been unlikely. I hope your descendants are incredibly proud of what you achieved!

  • Carlie Williams says:

    Happy Birthday Sir Frederick Banting!!
    As a fellow Canadian and moreso, one living with T1D, I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for the future of diabetics worldwide. Before you and your discovery of insulin, diabetes was a disease that would take the lives of those diagnosed – but because of your life changing research and hard work, I can happily say that even though I live a day to day life with this disease, I am healthy and looking forward to what the future holds for me.

    I hope you’re somewhere in the great beyond celebrating (maybe even with Charles Best?) how incredible of a person you truly are!!

    PS- Thanks for being the topic of many projects of mine throughout grade school. Any chance I could give my class a history lesson on you and your research, I took. You da man!!

I love my friends with no beta cells, and without Dr. Banting, I would never be able to know them. Thank you.

    Sir Frederick Banting, not only did you discover the stuff that let’s me run around this planet, but you laid out a slew of other things to be inspired by as well. You’re still the youngest person to have won the Nobel prize and your last travels were to go test out an anti-g flight suit. All things very cool – though the insulin deal is still probably the greatest.. . Thanks for being awesome.
    Happy Day!

    When there was no possibility, you continued until there was;
    You proved the impossible, possible;
    You proved that anything worth while must continue until achieved;
    When so many said it cannot be done, you proved to believe in the dream;
    When the masses did not follow, you relied on yourself and closest friends;
    You provided the hope when there was none.
    For your birthday, may we all keep your dream alive wherever we are in our diabetes journey…..you showed us that;
    The reality that any dream is possible.
    Happy Birthday Sir Frederick Banting.
