Transcript of Diabetes
Diabetes is when your body does not produce enough insulin or none at all.
History of Disease
An Egyptian physician, documented frequent urination as a weird disease in 1552 B.C. In 150 AD, the Greek physician Arateus described what we now call diabetes. Physicians soon learned that ants liked the urine of people with diabetes. Soon physicians started to taste peoples urine to see weather it was sweet or not.

Discription of Disease
