Resumen

Louis Mialhe (1807-1886) was a French physician and pharmacist who studied the chemical transformations of mercury chloride, the manufacture of ethyl ether, etc., and numerous physiological phenomena in human beings, among them, diabetes, the mechanism of assimilation of carbohydrates, fats, and albuminous substances, salvia action, pepsin, and gastric fluid upon food, the action of different purgatives according to their nature, etc. His work on human physiology led him to discover the presence of a diastase in saliva and suggest a theory about the diabetes origin.
