Dr. Joseph R. Kraft (1922-2017) passed away at 95 years of age. He had a very interesting and long medical career that resulted in a deep understanding and insights into diabetes. Sadly, like many other's who followed truth wherever it took them, Dr. Kraft's eminent work went very marginalized and unrecognized.

In regards to one of his books:

Dr. Kraft’s quarter century’s devoted study of glucose metabolism and blood insulin levels before its recognition by clinicians is thoroughly elaborated and clinically correlated in his sentinel monograph.

This book presents Dr. Kraft’s exceptional cumulative experience with 14,384 oral glucose tolerance tests with insulin assays performed at St. Joseph Hospital, Chicago between 1972 and 1998 while he was the chairman of the Department of Pathology and Nuclear Medicine. No parallel experience has ever been reported. This volume provides the earliest diagnosis of prediabetes and diabetes — even when the fasting blood sugar levels have been considered to be normal.

Dr. William H. Wehrmacher​
