Diabetes Mellitus vs Diabetes Insipidus
Kidneys are remarkable organs, but sometimes their filtering system breaks down. Diabetes is one of the most common disorders associated with kidney damage and failure. One of the causes of kidney failure is diabetes mellitus, a condition characterized by high blood glucose (sugar) levels. Over time, the high levels of sugar in the blood damage the microscopic structures within each kidney. Diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus both affect the urinary system and can have similar symptoms. Although diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus are caused by different processes, both conditions cause frequent urination.
