INSULIN AND CHRONIC DISEASE
Insulin: Its Crucial Role in Chronic Illness Ron Rosedale, M. D. 25th Inaugural congress meeting in Chicago. A medical doctors conference pertaining to new advancements in medicine. This is likely the first talk that really discussed the role that Insulin plays in chronic illness. Part One of Two
SPEAKER UNKNOWN: It is my extreme pleasure to introduce to you, Dr. Ron Rosedale, who will speak on INSULIN AND ITS CRUCIAL ROLE IN CHRONIC ILLNESS. Dr. Rosedale is associated with our President-Elect, Dr. John Wilson, and he will have some things to say that I believe will open our eyes. Thank you.
Dr. Ron Rosedale: Thank you for the privilege of speaking. The reason actually that I am speaking is that John asked me to, after the last AAEM meeting, and a very prominent speaker lectured on merits of a high carbohydrate diet. At the end of the talk, during the question-answer period, John got up, asked a reasonable question, “What about insulin?” The lecturer, who has written multiple books, basically just derided John, and said that he just hadn’t been keeping up the with the literature. This started a little bit of a heated discussion that went back and forth, and John knew of my interest in insulin for a long time.
