Diabetes mellitus is a collective group of metabolic ailments which can be divided into two categories. These are type 1 and type 2. The symptoms of both this kind of diabetes are quite similar. The lack of cells in the body is the key similarity between both types of the ailment which leads to excessive glucose production. In Type 1 the glucose levels are quite high due to lack of insulin which has been destroyed. The Type 2 variety of diabetes is because of the resistance of the cells to insulin that is released.

Loss of weight
This kind of symptom is associated with Type 1 diabetes. The pancreases in this kind of diabetes abates insulin formation due to which the autoimmune response attacks these cells. Since the cells of the body do not receive sufficient glucose the energy source tends to decrease. This causes the body to breakdown muscle tissue and fat for energy.
