Diabetes (mellitus) was once a simple affair. In 1902, William Osler summarized the knowledge of the disease in 14½ pages: It was "a rare disease in America" in those days. Now that the disease is common enough to be very important, the simplicity is gone from diabetes. Whereas Osler could cover complications of diabetes in 2½ pages, whole books are devoted to the topic now. Drs. Keen and Jarrett authored one such book in 1975 and have lately updated it. It is an important compilation of data bearing on the chief causes of morbidity and mortality, in modern diabetes.
