This volume emanates from the fountainhead of knowledge concerning the treatment of diabetes with insulin. Since any form of treatment of diabetic patients depends also on the control of food, popular books for them are a necessity. The present volume discusses the nature of the disease, the principles of control with food and insulin, and methods of urinalysis. It also provides numerous recipes of value. A special section lists institutions through which supplies for diabetic patients may be obtained. The volume is interleaved with pages for personal notes to be used in the individual case. The book may be recommended as especially suitable because of its accuracy and facility of use.
