Book Description USV Pharmaceutical Corporation, 1971. Hardcover. Condition: Used: Very Good. 8vo. Clean, unmarked pages. Good binding and cover. Hardcover. No dust jacket. Our knowledge of Diabetes as a distinct human affliction spans some eighteen hundred years, but until the turn of the twentieth century practiced observers managed only to record the symptoms of the illness, establish a basis for confirming diagnosis, and make some recommendations on diet. As recent as sixty years before the discovery of insulin in the summer of 1921, men of medicine variously speculated that diabetes was a disease of the blood, or stomach, or lungs, or liver, or nervous system. Many alternative remedies were prescribed, and venesection was one of the more commonly practiced. This book contains the selected writings of eight men, who reported their own findings and the discoveries of the colleagues, from the first detailed characterization of diabetes in the second century A.D. through the discovery of insulin. These papers appear in chronological order, and each is the work of an inquisitive mind, expounding the knowledge of that time period and searching for meaningful conclusions. They have been faithfully reproduced here, and with the exception of translations from Greek or German, and the transcription of old English into more readable form, these writings have not been altered fron the originals. The old English language has been retained, and the flavor of the earlier periods is conveyed by the syntax. In this way, one can savor the experience of the contemporary medical practitioner as he studied the current writings in his search for new insight. Ships daily. Seller Inventory # 1103100120
