This is enlarged over previous editions. The book has the same function as other "little" diabetic books written for and to the patient. This particular volume may be somewhat too detailed, so as to cause confusion. Some of the facts (pp. 36 and 58) are not always demonstrable as such. The food tables are excellent.
