The history of the relation of a disturbance in sugar metabolism to pituitary disease may be divided into two epochs, that prior to 1911, when rough, more or less scientific observations showed glycosuria with and without the administration of sugar in one group, and the inability, in another group, to produce glycosuria after the administration of sugar; and that epoch since 1911 when Goetsch, Cushing and Jacobson showed that sugar tolerance is increased in hypopituitarism, as determined by blood sugar determinations. From that date down to the present, numerous workers have verified that observation, and in various ways have applied
