The Hagedorn Era. Today we are standing on the threshold of a new era in diabetes. The Banting Era which we are now leaving was wonderful, and, even more, it was awe-inspiring. During these last 14 years you and I have seen diabetics gain hope, food, strength; insulin has breathed life into their dry bones and they stand upon their feet, a mighty army. Yet complications, although lessened in number and severity, persist and—I almost blush to admit it—diabetic coma is allowed to prowl about and decimate our diabetics by seizing the innocent, because undiagnosed, the ignorant and the careless.
