What Is Diabetes Insipidus – Causes, Symptoms And Treatments

The question, "What is diabetes insipidus?" may be new to you. Plenty has been written about its relative diabetes mellitus yet diabetes insipidus remains a bit more of a mystery. To define what is diabetes insipidus you could describe it as “a rare form of diabetes resulting from a deficiency of vasopressin (the pituitary hormone that regulates the kidneys); characterized by the chronic excretion of large amounts of pale dilute urine which results in dehydration and extreme thirst” (1). What is diabetes insipidus symptom profile? It is the presence of the large amounts of pale dilute urine that give diabetes insipidus the nickname water diabetes, which distinguishes it from diabetes mellitus which has been referred to as sugar diabetes. Other symptoms of diabetes insipidus include extreme thirst, urine that is not yellow but is pale and watery, and repeated trips to the bathroom including waking during the night to urinate or uncontrollable bedwetting accidents. What is diabetes insipidus caused by? There are 4 types of diabetes insipidus: Neurogenic diabetes insipidus, also know as central diabetes insipidus is the most common type and is caused by a lack of vasopressin (a.k.

    I was never told a daily limit. Mine was broken down like this:
    Breakfast 30 carbs
    Snack 15 carbs
    Lunch 45 carbs
    Snack 15 carbs
    Dinner 45 carbs
    Snack 15 carbs.
    In addition, I was told for every 15 carbs to have 7 grams of protein with it.
    Following these guidelines for me has helped me remain diet controlled. I am now 40w4d.. (Yes, I am 4 days past due!) and was diagnosed just before 28 weeks.

    Hope that helps!

    For the second test you need to have a minimum of 150 carbs a day for 3 days leading up to the test or it could result in a false positive. Make sure you eat at least 150 carbs!! I did the complete opposite when I failed the 1 hour and put myself basically on the Atkins diet. I failed my 3 hour and my doctors believe it was a misdiagnosis.
    Here are some links that suggest eating carbs before the test is the best way to go...

Diabetes Insipidus

Over the past two decades our understanding of the mechanisms that control water balance in health and disease has increased substantially. Following the establishment of reliable assay techniques to measure circulating vasopressin, the application of molecular biological methods to define hormonal and receptor abnormalities, and a greater knowledge of intracellular events within the renal tubular cells, it is now possible to characterise disorders of water balance more accurately. The physiology of water homeostasis is briefly discussed before the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of diabetes insipidus are described in detail. Physiology of water homeostasis It is essential that body water, both intracellular and extracellular, remains stable to allow normal cellular functions to take place. In humans, the maintenance of normal water balance is achieved principally by three interrelated determinants: vasopressin, thirst, and the kidneys. The secretion of vasopressin from the posterior pituitary is under very precise control. Small changes in blood solute concentration (plasma osmolality) regulate vasopressin release.1 An increase in plasma osmolality, usually indicating a Continue reading >>

    I'm off to the pub sometime next week to meet an old friend. We used to be booze buddies, but as you may know I am now off the booze. My problem is that, after a lifetime of beer or spirits, I'm usually at a loss at what to have in a pub that isn't diet coke (and running the risk with that that it might be full-fat)
    Any suggestions please?

  2. Robin

    When it's my turn to drive, I usually drink tomato juice, or slimline tonic (because it comes in a bottle, you can check it really is slimline, though watch out for Fever Tree Light, which is what I sometimes get offered, which has quite a surprising amount of carbs in the form of fructose in it)

  3. Copepod

    Lime and soda. Lowish sugar, not sugar free. Personally, I drink diet coke in a pub when driving, and have never been caught out, even from draught. But chosing a drink that comes in a bottle or can is pretty much fool proof.

Diabetes Insipidus is a rare illness that can affect anyone at any time. Visit http://www.skincare.technicians.co.uk... to learn more. Diabetes insipidus is a medical condition that can affect man, woman or child equally, age or race is no protection either. There are various symptoms associated with this illness and although not everyone will experience the same symptoms there are some that most sufferers will experience alike. The most universally observed symptoms of diabetes insipidus and the ones most common in all sufferers is Polydipsia and Polyuria. Polydipsia is having an excessive thirst which remains even after drinking large amounts of fluids. Polyuria is the condition that causes large amounts of urine to be passed through out the day and frequently through the night also. Both these conditions are seen as definitive signs that the patient is suffering from diabetes insipidus. Although these two conditions are the ones most commonly associated with diabetes insipidus they are not the only ones, in fact there are quite a few more symptoms that manifest themselves during this illness. A few of the more notable ones are: Confusion, tiredness and lethargy. Dizzy spells or feelings of light headedness. Dehydration and dry mouth. Electrolyte imbalance. Prescribed medication and lifestyle changes can often be effective in the treatment of diabetes insipidus. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "morgellons disease - learn more about morgellons disease" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9v8Q... -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Diabetes Insipidus

Definition: A disease that is characterized by frequent urination, excretion of large amounts of dilute URINE, and excessive THIRST. Etiologies of diabetes insipidus include deficiency of antidiuretic hormone (also known as ADH or VASOPRESSIN) secreted by the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS, impaired KIDNEY response to ADH, and impaired hypothalamic regulation of thirst.

    The cost(s) of insulin, you gotta be kidding me!?!

    One thing that shocked me being a new T2 diabetic and all was the cost of my insulin, especially considering that I don't have insurance so therefore I don't have prescription drug coverage of any kind.
    When my usual pharmacy - CVS - informed me that a single vial of my NNovolin N insulin in 10 mL size would be eighty-some dollars, I basically freaked because I have to have it to live. Not being one to take such a thing of such an apparent overcharging even to a newbie like me without an argument if not a fight, I went online and found a list of different national pharmacies' prices for the same vial of insulin, here's the link to that list which is frequently updated:
    http://www.goodrx.com/novolin-n/price
    When I saw on the list that our local WalMart offered it for twenty-six dollars and change of course, already using their $4 drug list for a couple of my other medications, I went over there to buy it for that only to be told the price was seventy-some bucks, sssoooo I went back home, printed out the list and took it back to them when/where they told me "oh, the $26 dollar price is only for those who know about it and ask for it (I swear I'm not making this up), so of course we'll honor that price".
    Yes, you heard correctly, if I hadn't found this online list and was able to present it to my local WallyWorld Druggie Shoppe, they would have ripped me off blind pretty much and smiled about it as they did so. Or maybe not . . .
    While doing my online searches I also ran across a list that offered deep discount coupons for most kinds of insulin, here's the link to that list:
    http://www.helprx.info/discounts?search[name]=NOVOLIN%20N&utm_campaign=newmedia&utm_medium=sear ch&utm_source=google&utm_term=novolin%20n&adid={Ad ID}&matchtype=b&Network=Search&SiteTarget&gclid=CO SJnPjXn7YCFap_QgodajoA_A
    If the link above isn't clickable, do a search for Help Rx's Drug Search page and then proceed from there.
    To make a long story a little shorter, having Help RX's 89% Off Novolin N coupon in hand, I had them do a comparison between the $26 stated price and what would be their street retail price of whatever it was and it came out that my needed insulin at WM was actually $24 with that coupon instead of the $26 it had been reduced to because I found that price online and simply refused to be screwed with. My local CVS refused to even consider honoring the Help RX coupon, by the way.
    Anyway, hadn't seen anyone post on this topic and hopefully my experiences will help others here, God Bless!

    Congratulations on beating the system. Really, what a horror story. This shouldn't be the case in the USofA. It's criminal.
    "I have to have [insulin] to live." No one should have to jump through these expensive hoops to get such medication. While reading your post I couldn't help but to think of those without knowledge of or access to a computer--and the ability to ferret life--or-death information from it.
    Thank you so much for the post! Although I am fortunate to have health care that picks up my tab (and it's not cheap), I will definitely pass this info on to other diabetics and ask them to tell yet other diabetics.

    Abstract We describe three patients who have polydipsia and polyuria due to an abnormality in the osmoregulation of thirst. The clinical manifestations of the syndrome are similar to those of neurogenic diabetes insipidus. Thus, under basal conditions the patients have thirst, normal to high normal levels of plasma osmolality, and low levels of plasma vasopressin. Moreover, antidiuretic therapy greatly reduces thirst and polydipsia as well as pol ...

    What is diabetes insipidus? Diabetes insipidus occurs when your body doesn’t make enough antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or your kidneys don’t respond to it. ADH helps keep the right amount of water in your body. Normally, ADH controls how much urine your kidneys put out. This keeps you from losing too much water (being dehydrated). If you are a bit dehydrated, ADH should increase. ADH is made by the hypothalamus, a small gland at the base of the ...
