Diabetes mellitus : it means the pancreas produce little or no insulin so then the body will have high glucose level isnt it? My teacher's notes said it increases ADH, increases blood volume, increases blood pressure and decreases osmotic pressure but decreases osmotic pressure means lower sugar levels .. I'm juz all confused :( Also when you have high blood volume, wouldnt that mean low blood pressure?

    diabetes mellitus means decrease in insulin secretion

    which causes increase in glucose level in the blood and also cause increase in the amount of urine and excessive feeling of thirst ....so it decreases the osmotic pressure of blood to absorb water and increases the osmotic pressure of urine so the volume of urine increases

    so u mean the osmotic pressure in blood decreases and osmotic pressure in urine increases?? so it is not true that high levels of sugar = high osmotic pressure?

    after some thought i think it is true ...cuz think about it....how would the osmotic pressure of urine increase if the osmotic pressure of blood is low....urine formation depends on blood filtration...so i guess that blood has high osmotic pressure to absorb the large amounts of sugar so that during the blood filtration process the urine absorbs the excess glucose leading to an increase in absorption of water from the nephron tubules leading to large amounts of urine and excessive feeling of thirst

    yea, so u also say that there is a high osmotic pressure in body? then i still dont understand why my teacher put it as low osmotic pressure cuz i think if osmotic pressure is high in blood, it should be high in urine too
