up the deficiency between his power
to utilize carbohydrate and his needs
In other ways.
The first problem for the patient
with diabetes, then. Is to discover
how much carbohydrate he can use
-—the glucose tolerance, as it is
called. If Mr. Smith (aged 55) can
use 150 grams of carbohydrate a day
and little Johnny Jones (aged 8) can
utilize only 40 grams, while Miss

After that, a patient with diabetes

It is impossible to set down hard
and fast rules for the diet of a dia
betic because each case is different.
The list given above is a very aver

and the list is in accord with facta

what his tolerance is. and then plans
his diet so that it shall contain no
more carbohydrate than he can tol

least at first, a table of food values
and a scale for weighing food. The
food table may be found in any of
the many diabetic manuals published

just as they do dictionaries), or send
10 cents td this column. The food
scales can be purchased at the hard

There are only three little addi
tional hints in planning the diet:
1. The amount of fat must not be
too high. Especially In young dia
betics this may brtpg on coma. How
high must be learned by study.
2. Vegetables ,containing a small
amount (5 per cent) carbohydrate
are better than concentrated starches
and sugars, because they get into the
blood slower.
3. When you can’t get enough to
eat. there’s always Insulin.

Dr. Clendening
Or if he is a learned man he may
explain that the term “bilious” Is a
survival from the medieval idea of
the disease—the idea that disease was
due to disturbance of the humors of
the body. The humors were four—
blood, bile, . phlegm and choler. If
one of these predominated in a per
sonality. or if someone were subject
to one of them, he was a sanguine,
a bilious, a phlegmatic or a choleric
man. as the case might be. The idea
has persisted In a subconscious way
until quite recent times, as witness
Disraeli's classic simile: “As bilious
as a Bengal general.” But your
learned doctor will explain the Idea
was not sound as an explanation of
disease, and there is no such thing
as biliousness.
Well, what Is the matter with you,
then, you may well ask? You have
certain sensations every once in a

bilious, and that is where you are

electricity generates magnetism. The
two are so perfectly balanced that
