The term diabetes (Greek: διαβήτης) was coined by Aretaeus of Cappadocia. It is derived from the Greek word διαβαίνειν, diabanein that literally means "passing through," or "siphon", a reference to one of diabetes' major symptoms: excessive urine production.
In 1675 Thomas Willis added mellitus from the Latin word meaning a sweet taste. This had been noticed in urine by the ancient Greeks, Chinese, Egyptians, and Indians.
