"What happens to us if you die?" This question, uttered by his ten-year-old daughter, forced Nick Mirrione at long last to face facts. He was close to 500 pounds. A multitude of different diets hasn't worked. Health retreats haven't worked. Self-restraint hasn't worked. Ignoring the problem hasn't worked, either. Forty-year-old Nick is in need of drastic measures. Enter Dr. R. Armour Forse, bariatric surgeon. Maybe bariatric surgery can solve Nick's problem - a gastric bypass procedure. But it will depend on what Nick's problem really is - the weight, or the emotional conditions that have led to it. And thus begins Nick Mirrione's journey - a journey of self-discovery that eventually leads to one more question: Who is this guy?

One of medicine's most remarkable therapeutic triumphs was the discovery of insulin in 1921. The drug produced astonishing results, rescuing children and adults from the deadly grip of diabetes. But as Chris Feudtner demonstrates, the subsequent transformation of the disease from a fatal condition into a chronic illness is a story of success tinged with irony, a revealing saga that illuminates the complex human consequences of medical intervention. Bittersweet chronicles this history of diabetes through the compelling perspectives of people who lived with this disease. Drawing on a remarkable body of letters exchanged between patients or their parents and Dr. Elliot P. Joslin and the staff of physicians at his famed Boston clinic, Feudtner examines the experience of living with diabetes across the twentieth century, highlighting changes in treatment and their profound effects on patients' lives. Although focused on juvenile-onset, or Type 1, diabetes, the themes explored in Bittersweet have implications for our understanding of adult-onset, or Type 2, diabetes, as well as a host of other diseases that, thanks to drugs or medical advances, are being transformed from acute to chronic conditions. Indeed, the tale of diabetes in the post-insulin era provides an ideal opportunity for exploring the larger questions of how medicine changes our lives.
