This series of concise papers presents in a coordinated fashion, for the benefit of the practitioner, the progress being made in biochemical and clinical investigations in the field of carbohydrate metabolism. The discussions include obesity and glycogenesis in experimental diabetes; certain endocrine aspects of carbohydrate metabolism, including the hypoglycemia factor of the pancreas; several papers relating to nutrition and diabetes, including vitamin B12, and several papers concerning the clinical management of diabetes, its complications, the disease during pregnancy, the control of surgical infections, and the role of psychological disturbances. Because the fundamental research is reported in most instances with commendable clarity and brevity, the pamphlet is heartily recommended to the clinician.
