The lectures do not cover the whole field of diabetes, but emphasize particularly some of the phases on which our knowledge has been especially enriched by modern research. The action of the various causes leading to an increased production of sugar is well illustrated by a diagram. The author regards the nervous influences as acting by stimulation of the adrenals to an increased production of epinephrin, while the thyroid and hypophysis on the other hand are supposed to act by depressing the pancreas. The therapeutic principles are carefully stated and the author lays stress on the importance of abolishing glycosuria in mild cases. The book closes with a special chapter on acetonuria, which constituted another lecture delivered in St. Louis.
