The author summarizes in adequate detail his experiences in the treatment of patients with uncomplicated diabetes. One fourth of the volume consists of sample diets and menus. Discussion of etiology and pathogenesis omits, the author states, recent developments. Perfunctory treatment is given to acute and chronic complications, juvenile diabetes, surgery, and pregnancy (in which the use of diethylstilbestrol is stressed). A further discussion is given to diabetic acidosis in which the author believes that overindulgence in carbohydrates plays a part. Because of its emphasis on clinical essentials and its readability this monograph is of value to the clinician.
