The route of the word diabetes relates to large volumes of urine, (dia means ‘through’ and betes means ‘to go’, meaning lots of water goes through the body). For example, in diabetes insipidus, large volumes of watery (or insipid) urine are passed as a result of reduced antidiuretic hormone production. It is important to realise diabetes insipidus is a completely different disease from diabetes mellitus. ‘Mellitus’ means sweet, so in diabetes mellitus large volumes of sweet urine are produced. Diabetes mellitus is sometimes called sugar diabetes.
