Diabetes is referred to describe the group of diseases in which a patient has high blood sugar (glucose) because of low insulin production or body cells not responding to insulin or in some cases both. Those with high blood glucose levels experience frequent urination (polyuria), and constant thirst ((polydipsia) and hunger (polyphagia).
