a disease characterized by excessive urination. Diabetes
mellitus is caused by insufficient insulin production or lack of responsiveness
to insulin, resulting in hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels). There
are 2 primary types of diabetes mellitus, type I (insulin-dependent or
juvenile-onset), which may be caused by an autoimmune response, and type
II (non-insulin-dependent or adult-onset). Diabetes insipidus is typically
due to hormonal dysregulation.
