Diabetic Care in Pictures.

AMA Arch Intern Med. 1954;93(5):805. doi:10.1001/archinte.1954.00240290163022.

The information in this book is stated simply and should be easily understood by the average lay person. It concerns normal and diabetic diets, insulin, insulin reactions, acidosis, diabetic coma, tests of blood and urine, cutaneous injuries, infections, and hygiene. A short discussion about personal and social factors is included.

The sketches of food exchanges have no quantitative aspects; they are based on those developed by the American Diabetes Association, which are approved by most physicians and dietitians.

The pictures showing the methods used in urinalysis and insulin technique are good. The method of sterilizing the syringe and needle used for injection of insulin is not universally accepted; many physicians prefer to have the syringe stored in alcohol, but evidently the authors have not encountered any difficulties with the technique they describe. All in all, this is a most satisfactory book for the instruction of the diabetic patient.
