When the blood goes through the kidney filter if there is a lot of glucose it is 'dumped' with other waste products into the urine glycouria results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin.

If you get hypoglycemic easily without food and yet im young and skinny, do I have diabetes mellitus?
No, the opposite: You have plenty of Insulin but not enough glucose - that is the exact opposite of diabetes. Since you are skinny, if you don't eat your glucose fuel sources run low and you get a low blood sugar - hypoglycemia. It's important for you not to skip meals and to eat small frequent meals that include proteins and complex carbohydrates to maintain an adequate blood sugar (so you don't pass out driving). ...Read more
Blood Tests: Once someone is shown to have diabetes, the next question is type 1 (can't make insulin) or type 2 (resistant to insulin). Usually this can be answered by age, height-weight information, family history, and other simple questions. If actual testing is needed, tests for Insulin levels, c-peptide, or antibodies to insulin-producing cells can be checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
