THI IflHMIDCI HBALD WWfMMhy, April 1, Ittt THE DOCTOR SAYS Not All Diabetics Need To Take Insulin By HAYNT G. BRANU8TADT, MJX Writtrthcl After the discovery of Insulin h 1921 diabetes was consider- id controllable. Now, years later, despite the addition of oral anti-diabetic dregs doe- ton are finding to our chagrin thai arterial complication aucb M retiniti-i, kidney ud heart disease, and peripheral are occurring in per- sons who have successfully kept their urine sugar-free for 10 to 10 years. Scene victims, to spite of high Hood sugar level, may produce i normal or increased amount rf insulin. Current research on this phenomenon has not yet provided a clear explanation but one Incontrovertible Jact has emerged. Giving insulin to such a patient does more barm than good. A recent British study indi- cates that prevention depends on the early deteclion of even a slight elevation in the blood su- gar level. If the patient is then treated with tolbutamide and pbenformin the arterial com- plications can often be prevent ed. Unfortunately, the condition DOW called prediabeles is often misdiagnosed as colitis, peptic ulcer or gallbladder disease be- cause of vague abdominal com- plaints or anxiety neurosis be- cause of the palpitations an temors. These symptoms are all due to a low blood sugar level resulting from an over production of insulin in the body. The arterial complications are now believed to be the re- sult of taking too much insulin For this reason, authorities now advocate giving only, enough to prevent the appearance of ace- tone in the urine. The oral drug phenformin, has the advantage of reducing' the amount of in- sulin required to accomplis this. Safflower oil has also been given to reduce the need for In- dia.

Urry Lewii Ckie Yoof BEETLE BAJLEY-BJ Waller U'L ABNKR-Bj Al Capt has made It clear that it win change its community des- gnab'ons as quickly as On- ario law has dunged numici- boundaries. So far, two regional govern- ment areas have been ere- ted. These are Ottawa-Cartefan, be province's first, born Jan. population which covers a rrjle area inrrnrling Ottawa and Vanier City, its former suburban community of East- view. The second is Niagara, which became operative Jan. this year with a population of in 26 municipalities covering 700 square miles. Ni- agara, includes the cities of. Niagara Falls, Wetland, St. Catharines and Port Colborne. GET COMMON' BORDER One development is that Wetland will have common boundaries with Niagara Falls and Port Colbome through the disappearance of buffer town- ships. Eight other regions are in be planning stage: Hamil- ton-WeDtworth; Kitchener-Wa terloo; Sudbury; Oshawa- WWtby; York County; Hal- ton-Peel; Muskoka, and Haldi- mand-Norfolk The ner regions are de- signed to eliminate fofl mtric- Inal governments-where there are fewer than people. The transition in Ottawa- Carleton has been so smooth that more than a year later there is still a scarcity of complaints. Dennis Coolican, 57, chair- man of the Ottawa-Carletori council, says there has been no active opposition to the new setup although some rural people, fearing higher taxes to pay for a higher ilandard of services, were, at first, suspicious. So far, the ax rate has not changed. Under the program, an area must have a minimum popu- lation base of to to qualify as a growth centre, and must cover major urban areas able to share so- cial, economic and phypical services with surrounding rural districts. Most will operate on the two-tier government system. A lower tier will consist of local and municipal councils operating independently on local matters, and the area government itself, the top Ucr. Tenure System Criticized EDMONTON ten- ure system at the University of Alberta could force appoint- ment tmioeediags irto the courts prendent Max Wyman said here. Tenure, a system by which a professor after a probationary period can receive a permanent posting at the university, was designed to protect academic freedom, Dr. Wyman said. It has reached the point wherfe every faculty member anticipating rejection of tenure is hiring legal counsel, he told a meeting of the general faculty council. "There b no question In my mind that enou-ji loopholes ex- ist to make our present pro- cedures inoperative, and, in- deed, if we keep to our present path, tenure decisions will in the future be made in the courts of the land. Dr. Wyman recomraaided a joint committee of the council and the academic staff be form- ed to examine the system. ,AK COtfT HARATEU. DpGPATCH HA!
