NOTES ON TAKA-DIASTASE.

NOTES ON TAKA-DIASTASE. I have been using taka-diastase recently in a large number of cases, my attention having been called to it some time since by a physician whom I met in consultation. It has been efficacious in such cases of amylaceous indigestion as are so frequently met with in gynecologic practice, and which seem dependent on irritation of the sympathetic governing digestion. The following case best illustrates its effect: Mrs. H., aged 38, had chronic ovaritis with intense pain in left inguinal region, flatulency, headache, colic occasionally. The ovaritis had been treated in the usual way, but the intestinal pains depending upon the flatulency and headache, resisted all remedies until I administered the taka-diastase in three grain doses after each meal. The result was remarkable in its promptness; at the end of three days the tympanites and pain had completely disappeared. I continued to use the remedy during two weeks, after which http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

I have been using taka-diastase recently in a large number of cases, my attention having been called to it some time since by a physician whom I met in consultation. It has been efficacious in such cases of amylaceous indigestion as are so frequently met with in gynecologic practice, and which seem dependent on irritation of the sympathetic governing digestion. The following case best illustrates its effect: Mrs. H., aged 38, had chronic ovaritis with intense pain in left inguinal region, flatulency, headache, colic occasionally. The ovaritis had been treated in the usual way, but the intestinal pains depending upon the flatulency and headache, resisted all remedies until I administered the taka-diastase in three grain doses after each meal. The result was remarkable in its promptness; at the end of three days the tympanites and pain had completely disappeared. I continued to use the remedy during two weeks, after which
