Diabetes

 

A wasting disease, of which the prominent symptoms are thirst and dryness of mouth, with passage of large quantities of urine containing sugar. It is a chronic disease, and may go on for years without affecting the general health to any great extent; but diabetics should be careful, as the disease is liable to take a dangerous turn. The older a patient is before the disease sets in the less dangerous it is.

General Treatment.-Avoidance of chills by the use of warm woollen underclothing; restriction of diet to articles of food containing little starch or sugar. Glycerine is a good substitute for sugar.

Medicines.-Syzygium ix. (five drops in a wineglass of water three times a day).

Ac. phos. I.-

When connected with nervous weakness and an apathetic condition.

Natrum mur. 6.-

Great thirst, wasting, constipation.

Sulph. 6.-
