A disorder of the metabolism causing excessive thirst and the production of large amounts of urine,
A disorder of the metabolism causing excessive thirst and the production of large amounts of urine
a polygenic disease characterized by abnormally high glucose levels in the blood; any of several metabolic disorders marked by excessive urination and persistent thirst
(diabetic) someone who has diabetes
Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes—is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. ...
Diabetes is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published since 1952 by the American Diabetes Association. A monthly publication, Diabetes publishes original research about the physiology and pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus. ...
The inability of the body to produce, or the inability to metabolize, the human hormone insulin; Diabetes insipidus, usually a disorder of the pituitary gland, leading to a form of type II diabetes
A disease in which blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are above normal. Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), is the most common form of diabetes.
Diabetes is the most common disorder of the endocrine (hormone) system. Diabetes occurs when the body cannot regulate blood sugars.
A disease in which the body is unable to utilize blood glucose because inadequate amounts of insulin are produced by the pancreas.
A chronic disease associated with abnormally high levels of sugar in the blood. People with diabetes should avoid using nicotinic acid.
High blood sugar. Also called diabetes mellitus. Diabetes can occur when your body doesn't make enough insulin to keep your blood sugar controlled. This is called Type I diabetes. ...
disease resulting from inadequate insulin production, resulting in abnormally high glucose (sugar) levels in the blood
(dye-a-BEE-teez): A disease in which the body does not properly control the amount of sugar in the blood. As a result, the level of sugar in the blood is too high. This disease occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin or does not use it properly.
The short name for the disease called diabetes mellitus. Diabetes results when the body cannot use blood glucose as energy because of having too little insulin or being unable to use insulin. See also type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes.
A disease that impairs the ability of the body to use sugar resulting in the loss of sugar through urine, and an increase in the level of sugar levels in the blood.
Diabetes represents a greater risk factor in CVD for women than for men (Laurence and Weinhouse, 1997; Canadian Women's Health Network, 2001). The higher prevalence of diabetes in Aboriginal women than in Aboriginal men compounds their risk of CVD.
A chronic health condition where the body is unable to produce insulin and properly breakdown sugar (glucose) in the blood. Symptoms include hunger, thirst, excessive urination, dehydration and weight loss. ...
A grouping of diseases in which either the body does not synthesize (manufacture) insulin, or else its tissues are insensitive to the insulin that it does synthesize.
For our bodies to work properly we need to convert glucose (sugar) from food into energy. A hormone called insulin is essential for the conversion of glucose into energy. In people with diabetes, insulin is no longer produced or not produced in sufficient amounts by the body.
(dye-uh-BEE-teez) — Having too much sugar in your blood. Too much sugar in your blood can damage organs in your body, including blood vessels, nerves, eyes and kidneys.
a disease which causes a high glucose level and can cause kidney failure - this develops in about 20% of all patients with diabetes.
A condition in which the glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body is unable to use it properly. Diabetes may be responsible for decreased fertility and increased incidence of miscarriage.
Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder of the pancreas being unable to produce sufficient insulin (a hormone that regulates carbohydrate metabolism) to maintain a healthy level of blood sugar. ...
A pancreatic disorder that causes abnormal insulin production. This affects the body's ability to utilise sugar and other food substances and is usually treated by diet modification (restricted sugar intake) and use of insulin. ...
Diabetes mellitus is a condition associated with an elevation of blood glucose levels. (Translation note: Second sentence deleted.)
A disease caused by high levels of sugar in blood. It can be caused by too little insulin (a hormone produced by the pancreas to control blood sugar), resistance to insulin, or both. ...
