BODY, MIND AND SUGAR

A first popular presentation of the condition known as hyperinsulinism, or sugar starvation, and its possible attendant influence on both physical and emotional behavior. Dr. Abrahamson, who specialized in diabetes for many years, the reverse of hyperinsulinism, gives a short history of this disease prior to the discovery of insulin, and the current treatment. In the case of hyperinsulinism, he shows how this deficient factor in the blood's chemistry (frequently not diagnosed) has a reciprocal relation with allergies, neurotic behavior, alcoholism, glandular activity, epilepsy and other ills misclassified as psychosomatic. The tests to determine this lack, diets to counteract it, are included....Though not intended as a medical book, this is still chiefly for the doctor's office- rather than the patient's bedside.
