This information does not answer the question as to whether Lamictal causes Diabetes Mellitus, just that there is a percentage of people in different age groups with Diabetes Mellitus who take it. Does the drug affect the function of the part of the brain governing insulin secretion, the pituitary? Would a brain injury to the third ventricle area affect the function of the pituitary gland, causing diabetes symptoms and weight gain?

From this study (2 months ago):
Never had a NON FASTING blood glucose reading at any time over 125mg/l
Within 3 weeks of the adding of Ramipril and Triamterene HCTZ to my medications I experienced almost complete blindness over a weekend. The following Monday I went to my doctor and my blood glucose reading was 525mg/l. I have tried all medications (Janumet, Actos, Insulin) none have made any difference.
