Gerold Grodsky was not a physician and not a diabetic. But he understood how insulin worked as well as any doctor who treated the chronic disease and any patient who tried to stabilize their blood sugar.
Grodsky was a research scientist at UCSF who developed a means of accurately measuring the level of insulin in the body. This discovery, published in a 1960 paper, was life changing for the population of insulin-dependent, or Type 1 diabetics, and the much larger population of insulin-resistant Type 2 diabetics.
