Polyuria occurs when your body urinates more frequently—and often in larger amounts—than normal. Polyuria in Type 1 Diabetes occurs when you have excess levels of sugar in the blood. Normally, when your kidneys create urine, they reabsorb all of the sugar and direct it back to the bloodstream. With Type 1 Diabetes, excess glucose ends up in the urine, where it pulls more water and results in more urine.
