A description of the experience

As described in Illustrations Of The Influence Of The Mind Upon The Body In Health And Disease, Designed To Elucidate The Action Of The Imagination - Daniel Hack Tuke, M.D., M.R.C.P.,

PART I. THE INTELLECT.
CHAPTER V. INFLUENCE OF THE INTELLECT UPON THE ORGANIC OR VEGETATIVE FUNCTIONS.

The influence of intense study, long continued, in causing diabetes will not be questioned. In one of the most rapid cases which have fallen under our notice, this was apparently the cause. Dr. Richardson refers to three cases "in which the first excretion of sugar and the profuse diuresis were sequential to severe mental strain," and observes that "they constitute a hopeless class ; the danger sudden, the course rapid, the fatal end sure" (The Journal of Mental Science. Edited by Drs. Maudsley and Sibbald 1868).
