Dr.R., aged about 43 years’,a diabetic since 1938,called me for consultation on the 22nd of September,1951. During the also few2 years he had been using Homoeopathic remedies off and on whenever need arouse,and had been passing.1.25 % to 2% sugar in the urine without much the dietetic restriction and usually kept quite fit. Early in September, 1951,he started getting a little burning during micturition,which he neglected, perhaps taking a dose or two occasionally of some homoeopathic remedies which he thought to be indicated.
About September 12th,he got a little fever which continued for about eight days, ranging between 98 degree and 99.4 degree Fahrenheit for which he took Ars.30., Puls. 30., and lastly Merc., sol.30 which cured the fever,but the burning during micturition with a little pain at its close(superadded during the course of the slight fever) continued,for which he kept on taking something or the other.
On the 20th of September,she indulged in dietetic indiscretion taking rich friend food, on account of which he became severely constipated and the next day during the night he got fever and severe pain in the back for which he now consulted me. As he had been turning and tossing in the bed without relief in any position Rhus Tox 30. was given, but without any relief. Next Pyrogenium 200., was given in a single dose which relieved the pain and restlessness a little, but the fever continued ranging between 99.5 degree and 101 degree.
His allopath friends and family members now started pressing him to take penicillin and Streptomycin injections for the pyelitis which, they warned him, was always to be viewed with great seriousness in a diabetic they admonished him not to play with his life by persisting in Homoeopathic treatment any longer. But he had great faith in Homoeopathy and asked me to save him from resorting to allopathic treatment. He now presented the symptom of sweating given on 9-27.51 three doses of Merc sol 30. thrice a day. Blood and urine examinations were also ordered and carried out the same day. the reports were as follows:.

The patient’s allopath friends marveled at the results.”Did you give any medicine to kill the germs? they asked,.My reply was : :”
I may mention that Insulin was used in this case in suitable doses during the period of illness and carnival scene., I sometimes use it in acute infections to aid the struggling vitality. I however look upon it as an aid only and not as an essential part of the treatment.
