The statistical study of 1,000 cases of diabetes1 which I reported a year ago was an attempt to correlate my data with those of other authors and to offer evidence of the different factors involved in the study of this disease. The present statistical study in a larger series is but a continuation of my previous presentation.
During the period which this study covers, March 1, 1921, to Nov. 1, 1927, the total number of new patients admitted to the clinic was 87,449. Thus the incidence of diabetes among our patients during this period was 2.28 per cent; while in the first series, among the 55,939 patients seen in the clinic during the period covered by that series, March 1, 1921, to Aug. 31, 1925, the diabetic incidence was 1.8 per cent.
