Has anyone read the Ralph Moody books? They are great family reading..we read them for homeschooling. I was looking at his biography and it briefly mentions that he was diagnosed with diabetes in his twenties after getting rejected for the military. Possibly around the 1930s. I think it is addressed in the "Shaking the Nickel Bush" book. We haven't read that one yet. May be interesting to learn more....I think he was put on a really strict diet.
