Diabetes mellitus results from the pancreas being unable to produce enough insulin for the body to utilize blood glucose correctly. The body needs insulin to convert sugar from foods eaten into energy for all cells in the body.

Diabetic ketoacidosis is life-threatening complication if mellitus is left untreated or poorly treated.
