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?
