Abstract

To the Editor:  —I should like to suggest that an effort be made to change the method commonly used of expressing blood sugar as percentage values.In discussion with several men, I find that the tendency has been to change into the form used for other blood chemical determinations, milligrams per hundred cubic centimeters. This would make the matter easier to write out and would make blood sugar conform with blood urea and other nitrogenous constituents of the blood.
