The man is still young, just a Teenager when the symptoms begin: It is an extreme weariness, he feels tired. With time, paralysis is added. Now, with 68 years, the man of Bahn looks back on a run as Professor of mathematics – the attacks are so bad that they occur almost on a daily basis. In the afternoon, the mathematician suddenly collapses and can’t move for hours, not speaking, not blinking. The attacks he experienced, always fully conscious. What are the triggers?

A circumstance which made the mathematician, however, has long been suspicious: The attacks seem to be particularly hearty meal times to be holding off. To an undetected Diabetes disease the not can – be sugar metabolism is healthy. But in fact, the observation of the math geniuses proves to be useful. A medic asks the man, nutrition tables, create – and so the doctor and the Patient felt the cause of a mystery paralysis to adhere to.
