Glycosuria is not infrequently met with in cases of hyperthyroidism. As in pregnancy, however, if urinalyses are made at frequent intervals rather than on special occasions, its incidence is found to be much greater than recorded in standard text books. It is somewhat related to the basal metabolic rate; the higher the rate, the greater is the incidence. This probably accounts for the fact that glycosuria is met with more frequently in exophthalmic goitre than in so-called "secondary" hyperthyroidism associated with adenomata. The relationship between basal metabolism and glycosuria will, again, be referred to, as the above statement requires modification.
