A new edition of this helpful book will be welcomed by physician and patient as it brings the treatment up to date.
To Dr. Joslin belongs the credit for emphasizing the importance of educating the diabetic patient. From the physician's standpoint, the education of the patient is essential in the treatment of diabetes. This book, placed in the hands of the patient, with assistance from the physician, renders the education of the patient a comparatively easy task.
Written in a very readable style and yet giving accurate information, it should be valuable to both physician and patient.
