As permanent damage has generally been done in the pancreas in such conditions, the authors consider it unreasonable to expect a cure of diabetes by removal of the infectious cause. The direct treatment was initial fasting until glycosuria ceased. This was followed by a diet of protein, generally containing a small amount of carbohydrate, until hyperglycemia and acidosis disappeared. The diet was then built up, especially with fat--"maintenance diet"--the allowance of all three classes of foods being governed by the severity of the case and the normal blood-sugar and negative acetone reactions. Results.--One patient had advanced tuberculosis and died in five months. Another entered with a middle ear abscess and died of meningitis. One had an uncontrollable diabetes and died. Two others died at intervals of two and three months after being discharged. It is an interesting fact that although all diabetic patients were exposed to the influenza epidemic none acquired it. A.
