Excerpt from Pediatrics, Vol. 26: A Monthly Journal Devoted to the Study of Disease in Infants and Children; January 1 to December 31, 1914 Ordinary diabetes is comparatively rare in children while true diabetes is distinctly uncommon. Yet the disease in either of these forms is not rarely so infrequent as it was believed to be but -a few years ago. However, true diabetes must not be confused with that type of glycosuria which exhibits itself by the transistory appearance of sugar in the urine, such as is seen in whooping cough, for instance, alimentary glycosuria is a defect of metabolism and of assimilation of carbohydrate foods. According to leading pediatricians true diabetes is a dis ease of hereditary origin, or rather a disease in which family inﬂuence plays an important part, as for example, the neuro pathic epilepsy insanity and syphilis occurring in the parents or progenitors all exert a powerful factor to production in the young of succeeding generations. The disease is apt to occur in children of diabetics. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
