Insulin shock therapy or insulin coma therapy ICT was a form of psychiatric treatment in which patients were repeatedly injected with large doses of insulin in order to produce daily comas over several weeks. It was one of a number of physical treatments introduced into psychiatry in the first four decades of the 20th century. Insulin coma therapy and the convulsive therapies are collectively known as the shock therapies. In , Sakel, who had recently qualified as a doctor in Vienna and was working in a psychiatric clinic in Berlin , began to use low sub-coma doses of insulin to treat drug addicts and psychopaths, and after one of the patients experienced improved mental clarity after having slipped into an accidental coma, Sakel reasoned the treatment might work for mentally ill patients. Joseph Wortis , after seeing Sakel practice it in , introduced it to the US.
