Q.

Urinating

Why does diabetes  make you urinate so much? I am a borderline diabetic and I urinate all the time why is that ?

The most likely reason in your case is an osmotic diuresis.

Glucose is osmotically active, and does not allow your kidneys to concentrate urine to the same extent as usual.
As a result you produce more urine than someone who is not Diabetic.
