POTASSIUM DEFICIENCY AND THE ROLE OF THE KIDNEY IN ITS PRODUCTION.
TLDR
The study reported here was undertaken in an attempt to elucidate some of the clinical problems of potassium deficiency in adult patients, including the relation of the concentration of potassium in serum to cellular deficiency of the ion, the extent of such cellular deficiencies and their relation to retention of administered potassium, and the physiological abnormalities by which such deficits are produced.
SODIUM AND POTASSIUM EXCHANGES IN PERIODIC PARALYSIS
TLDR
The finding that potassium excretion diminished coincidently with the fall in serum concentration during an attack, and found erratic fluctuations in excretion of potassium and sodium between attacks is confirmed.
The present status of potassium therapy.
Classification of malabsorption syndrome.

TLDR
Malabsorption syndromes are usually caused by defective digestion or absorption in the small intestine but may also be associated with abnormalities of the stomach and the term “malabsorption syndrome” rather than steatorrhoea is generally used to describe the whole group of conditions.

TLDR
Lower serum levels of this electrolyte can be taken to reflect comparable changes in the potassium concentration of the extracellular fluid as a whole, i.

TLDR
Quantitative aspects of potassium uptake and excretion by the gut have been presented, and the mucosal cells have been shown to be efficient in their handling of the cation.
Radiotherapeutic management of small intestinal lymphoma with malabsorption
TLDR
Aggressive radiation therapy can result in dramatic improvement and possible cure of this otherwise hopeless situation.
Coeliac disease, gluten-free diet, and malignancy.
TLDR
Two hundred and two patients with coeliac disease or idiopathic steatorrhoea previously reported from this unit have been reviewed after a further 10 years of follow-up and there was no evidence that patients showing sub-optimal clinical response to gluten withdrawal or persisting falt jejunal biopsies were more prone to die of cancer.

The clinical and biochemical syndrome in lymphadenoma and allied diseases involving the mesenteric lymph glands.
TLDR
There is no reliable evidence that mesenteric lymphatic obstruction constitutes the basis of defective intestinal absorption in sprue, idiopathic steatorrhoea, or coeliac disease, but it appears to underlie the clinical and biochemical picture shown in the present series of Mesenteric adenopathies.
CELIAC DISEASE: RACHFORD MEMORIAL LECTURES
TLDR
The outstanding feature in celiac disease is the inability of the child suffering from it properly to absorb fat from the intestine, and remembering the classic researches of Dr. Rachford on the action of pancreatic juice and bile, I cannot help feeling that a review of the present condition of the knowledge of Celiac disease would have proved of special interest to him.
