from 'through,' and 'I pass.' Urinae profluvium, Hyperdiuresis, Sipho urinae, Urorrhagia, Polyuria, Hydrops ad Matulam seu Motellae, Polyuresis, Urozemia, Ureorrhoea, Dipsacos, Diarrhoea in Urind seu urinosa, (F.) Diabete, Flux d'Urine. A disease, characterized by great augmentation and often manifest alteration in the secretion of urine; with excessive thirst, and progressive emaciation. Cullen has described two species:- Diabetes insipidus and D. Mellitus; the former, (F.) Diabete faux ou insipide, Diabete, being, simply, a superabundant discharge of limpid urine, of its usual, urinary taste: the latter, D. Mellitus, called, also, Parurin Mellita, Diabetes Anglicus seu verus, Melituria, Melithyperuria, Glucosuria, Glycyrrhoea urinosa, Urozemia mellita, Saccharorrhoea urinosa, Phthisuria, Uro-phthisis, Tabes diuretica seu diabetica, Dyspepsia saccharine Apocenoaia Diabetes Mellitua, Saccharine diabetes, (F.) Diabete sucri, Hyperurorrhee saccharine, Phthisurie sucree, -falls under the definition given above. The quantity of urine, discharged in the 24 hours, is sometimes excessive, amounting to 30 pints and upwards; each pint containing sometimes 2 (1/4) oz. saccharine matter. This replaces the urea, which is not found in quantity in the urine of those labouring under diabetes. Where the disease is situate is not clear. The whole system of nutrition, however, seems to be morbidly implicated. A part of the urine must be formed at the expense of the system, as the egesta frequently far exceed the solid and liquid ingesta. On dissection, no morbid appearance is met with, sufficient to enable us to fix on the seat of this distressing affection. All the remedies that have been tried have usually been found insufficient in D. Mellitus. D. insipidus, Hyperuresis aqnosa, Hydruria, Hydruresis, Paruria incontinena aquosa, Diabetes spurius, Urorrhoea, Ureal Diabetes, (F. Polyurie, Hyperurrorrhee, Diabete insipide, Faux diabete, which occurs in hysterical habits, and has, hence, been called D. hystericus, is of comparatively trifling moment. Exclusive diet, and attention to the state of the cutaneous transpiration, which have sometimes produced good effects in D. Mellitus, have most commonly failed.
