"Bernard showed that in diabetes there is primarily glycemia followed by glycosuria." [G-M]. He was the first to show that one of the primary signs of diabetes is an excess of sugar in the blood and usually in the urine. "Claude Bernard, in these classical lectures on diabetes, clearly states the principles of glycemia and glycosuria. He stresses the invariable presence of sugar in the blood of healthy people as well as of diabetics, although the test must be made promptly or the sugar disappears. This view has not been generally accepted but is correct. Lectures 5 and 6 are devoted to an interesting and definitive historical survey of glycemia. The entire book is rich in fundamental observations." – Bloomfield. REFERENCES: Arthur L. Bloomfield, A Bibliography of Internal Medicine Selected Diseases, (1960), pp. 120-21; Garrison and Morton 3942; Heirs of Hippocrates 1800. First Edition.
