Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...renal, pancreatic, etc. Reference has already been made to the view that excessive activity of the thyroid may also lead to glycosuria. The observations made by Blum, Zuelzer and Metzger have established the fact that injection of suprarenal extract is capable of producing hyperglycaemia and glycosuria. Herter and Richards1 found that intraperitoneal injection of adrenalin chloride was also capable of producing glycosuria. Herter and Wakeman have made many observations on adrenalin glycosuria: amongst the more interesting are those which show that when the pancreas is painted with 1 of 1 in 1,000 solution of adrenalin hydrochloride, considerable glycosuria is produced. The smallest degrees of glycosuria were those produced by giving adrenalin by the mouth, probably owing to the oxidation which goes on in the alimentary tract. Adrenalin glycosuria differs from that produced by phloridzin, because it is accompanied by a hyperglycaemia; it is quite independent of any possible increase of blood pressure due to the adrenalin, for glycosuria persists when the blood pressure is kept low by the use of nitroglycerine. Herter and "Wakeman conclude that the glycosuria following the painting of the pancreas with adrenalin is due to nervous influences which, generated in the pancreas, react on the liver; solutions of potassium cyanide, when 1 Med.

Judging from the fact that severer glycosuria occurred when the tail of the pancreas was treated with adrenalin than when the head of more
