AbstractDried pulverized callus from the sole of diabetic patients showed poor water-uptake (p < 0.001 to < 0.05) and water-loss at different humidities (25% to 100%) and at different temperatures (50 C, 370 C and 50' C), a finding not oberved after ether washing or ether- water washing. The total nitrogen content of the diabetic callus showed no significant variation from the normal controls. The cutaneous insensible perspiration when measured by the unventilated chamber technic of Monash and Blank showed poor diffusive power (p < 0.001).
