Diabetes Mellitus

Definition of Diabetes Mellitus:

A disease with increased blood glucose levels due to lack or ineffectiveness of insulin.  Diabetes is found in two forms; insulin-dependent diabetes (juvenile-onset) and non-insulin-dependent (adult-onset).  Symptoms include increased thirst; increased urination; weight loss in spite of increased appetite; fatigue; nausea; vomiting; frequent infections including bladder, vaginal, and skin; blurred vision; impotence in men; bad breath; cessation of menses; diminished skin fullness.  Other symptoms include bleeding gums; ear noise/buzzing; diarrhea; depression; confusion.
