Caption

Frederick Allen (1879–1964). Portrait of the American doctor Frederick Madison Allen. Allen is best known for his work to develop a diet for people with diabetes mellitus before insulin was used. In April 1921 he opened the Physiatric Institute in Morristown, New Jersey, USA - the world's first clinic for sufferers of diabetes mellitus. His diet involved drastic reduction of calorie intake, sometimes involving as little as 8% of calories coming from carbohydrates. However it did not prolong life by more than a few years.
