Page 31 - In this inter-relation of the brain and the suprarenals, we have what is perhaps the master key to the automatic action of the body. Through the special senses environmental stimuli reach the brain and cause it to liberate energy which in turn activates certain other organs and tissues, among which are the suprarenal glands.
Page 18 - The nitrogen partitions in the urine in such patients are in most cases abnormal, with relatively high ammonia, high rest nitrogen, notable quantities of kreatinin, but with diminished urea and kreatinin excretion. Such findings indicate severe nutritional disturbance, and the possibility of metabolic toxins being responsible for the symptoms in such cases is commonly accepted. The means of relief in acute conditions by the very active stimulation of excretion through skin, bowel, and kidney, through...
Page 31 - ... are driven to increased activity, and the increased adrenin in turn excites the brain to still greater activity, the results of which are equivalent to increased work of the sympathetic nervous system. These results are principally the following: increased...

Page 35 - The defect in cretinism is one of the whole thyroid mechanism, of the parathyroids as well as of the thyroid gland. The diversity of symptoms is due to the extent to which the defect bears on the whole or part of that mechanism [McCarrison (382)].
Page 26 - ... that the available evidence indicates that the adrenals secrete a substance, epinephrin, of remarkable potency. This substance selectively affects the tissues having sympathetic nervous control, thereby affecting many vital functions. Adrenal discharge occurs when the individual is subject to stress, as strong emotions, pain, asphyxia.
Page 55 - McCord1 from bovine fetal glands during all developmental stages in which the macroscopic recognition of the glands is possible. For the pituitary gland this period is from the eighth week to full term ; for the suprarenals the period is from the sixth week to full term. The presence of the active principles of these glands at so early a developmental period suggests that the fetus in utero may be under the influence of its own internal secreting glands as well as the maternal glands.

Page 35 - ... Symptoms of excessive thyroid functioning may occur in the very incipient stage of tuberculosis. They seem independent of the gravity of the case, the age, sex, etc. In fact, he thinks that symptoms of Basedow's disease may indicate the existence of a latent tuberculous infection. When tuberculosis symptoms are pronounced the symptoms of Basedow's disease change the clinical picture, producing a thyroid-tuberculosis combination. Successful treatment of the exophthalmic goiter symptoms may improve...
