John Rollo

  • Chapter

Abstract

In 1797 there was published in England a book entitled in part, An Account of Two Cases of the Diabetes Mellitus. In it John Rollo, M.D., a surgeon of the Royal Artillery, recorded in detail his observations regarding the course of diabetes in two patients treated by means of a special diet. As a result, his methods of treatment and ideas regarding the origin of diabetes were widely discussed in England and on the Continent with acceptance by some and rejection by others. Rollo has become known as the first, or certainly one of the first, to plan definite diets for diabetic patients.
