Diabetes Insipidus

Diabetes insipidus (DI) causes recurrent urination. You turn into extremely thirsty, so you drink. Then you urinate. This cycle can stay you from inactive or even make you wet the bed. Your body produce big volumes of urine that are roughly all water.

DI is dissimilar from diabetes mellitus (DM), which involve insulin harms and high blood sugar. The symptoms can be similar; however, DI is connected to how your kidneys switch fluids. It's much less general than DM. Urine and blood test can show which one you have.

Usually, DI is cause by a trouble with your pituitary gland or your kidneys. Treatment depends on the origin of the problem. Medicines can often help.
