Pathophysiology

What is the difference between Disbetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus? I know what diabetes mellitus is but i am having some difficulties with the insipidus part. I know that there is type 1 and type 2 but that is all part of mellitus; isn't it? HELP!! PLEASE!!

YEs, type 1 and 2 are variations of Diabetes melitius.

Diabetes Insipidus is a disease that highlights the failure of one chemical to be present (or there is a immune reaction to) which prevents unine to concentrate, thus, free water is excreted.
