Carbohydrate Metabolism and Insulin

Nature volume 119, pages 229230 (12 February 1927) | Download Citation



THIS comparatively large volume furnishes an excellent description of carbohydrate metabolism in general. This is only what might be expected from such a well-known author as Prof. Macleod, who has done so much useful work on this subject. To anybody wishing to get a fundamental idea of our present knowledge in this field of metabolism the book can be confidently recommended. Of all the volumes of literature on the difficult and evasive problem of carbohydrate changes in the animal body, the present appears certainly to be the best. It deals with the subject in a clear though fundamental manner, and embraces everything that is known as to the physiology of carbohydrate metabolism.
