Diabetes mellitus is the metabolic disease that results from lack of insulin. The World Health Organisation Expert Committee on diabetes mellitus defined the disease in terms of blood glucose levels. If the random blood glucose is equal to or greater than 1l.0 mmol/l in a (non-pregnant) patient with polyuria, polydipsia, weight loss and occasional glycosuria, that patient has diabetes.
