Answer preview

Polyuria, polydipsia, and polyphagia are significant symptoms of Type 1 diabetes mellitus (Sapra et al., 2021). Polyuria means frequent urination. Polydipsia is the increased thirst, and polyuria is high appetite. Polyuria occurs due to high blood glucose levels, causing the body to remove the extra glucose through urination (Sapra et al., 2021). Since the body loses excess fluids due to urination, this increases the thirst urge (polydipsia) to replace the lost fluids. Further, the body’s inability to convert glucose to energy due to insulin resistance or low production increases the patient’s appetite in polyphagia.
