By Robert A. Gabbay, MD, PhD, Special to Everyday Health In 1920, when Dr. Frederick Banting and medical student Charles Best extracted the hormone insulin from the pancreas, they revolutionized the world of diabetes care. Insulin works by moving the sugar or glucose obtained from food into your body's cells, which is then used for energy.
