This first volume is another good textbook on diabetes mellitus. The author, who has had wide experience in this field of medicine, has written a most interesting history of diabetes.
The chapters on the treatment of juvenile diabetes and the diabetes of pregnancy are well written but brief.
The final section of the book is devoted to diets for diabetic persons of all ages. This section may be considered superfluous by some; to others, who treat occasional patients with diabetes, it may be most valuable.
