dc.description.abstract1. Epilepsy is associated with a low fasting blood sugar. 2. The glucose tolerance curve in Epilepsy shows the Islets of Langerhans to be over-active. 3. Those drugs which are beneficial in Epilepsy raise the blood sugar. 4. In the post-convulsive phase of Epilepsy the immunity from fits is due to a raised blood sugar. 5. Variations in the balance of the Autonomic Nervous System have little influence on the incidence of fits. 6. Natural recovery from Epilepsy is associated with the onset of hypo-insulinism.en
