Iconic People: Fred Gunville
Fred Gunville recognized the signs. He was losing weight, urinating frequently and he couldn’t help but remember the huge syringes his aunt and uncle used to inject the life-saving insulin. Young Fred wasn’t yet a doctor, but his first diagnosis was correct. He had diabetes.
A pediatrician by training, Dr. Gunville focused his career on helping children and their families overcome the ever-changing challenges of diabetes. The goal, he said, is to keep children out of the hospital.
