A: The classic and most common symptoms are called the polys--polyuria, polydypsia, and polyphasia--excessive urination, excessive thirst, and excessive eating or hunger.
For example, polydypsia (excessive consumption of liquids) in diabetics results not from lack of will power or an excessive drive to drink, but rather from the fact that drinking is not sufficient to correct blood hyperosmolality which is caused by hyperglycemia secondary to insufficient insulin.
There was no history of fever, cough, headache, polydypsia, polyuria, visual symptoms or gastrointestinal bleed.
