The amount of urine produced can be nearly 20 liters per day.[ Reduction of fluid has little effect on the concentration of the urine.[1] Complications may include dehydration or seizures.[1] There are four types of DI, each with a different set of causes.] Central DI (CDI) is due to a lack of the hormone vasopressin(antidiuretic hormone).] This can be due to damage to the hypothalamus or pituitary gland or genetics Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) occurs

Diabetes Insipidus

Etiology DI may be central in origin, resulting from an absolute or relative deficiency of arginine vasopressin (AVP), or nephrogenic in origin, resulting from a renal insensitivity or resistance to AVP, with a reduction in the permeability of the collecting duct to water. [1] [2] Central DI Pituitary surgery: transsphenoidal pituitary surgery, [1] [5] [3] usually for a pituitary adenoma, is a common cause of central DI. It is uncommon for DI to present preoperatively with pituitary lesions, except in the case of craniopharyngioma or infiltrative hypothalamic/pituitary stalk lesions. DI may be transient or permanent. Less commonly, it may manifest as a classical triple-phase response: acute initial central DI, followed by a transient antidiuretic phase (presenting as hyponatremia due to SIADH), and then permanent central DI. [6] Craniopharyngioma: in contrast to most intracranial tumors, central DI is common in patients with a craniopharyngioma both preoperatively (8-35%) and postoperatively (70-90%). [7] Patients with craniopharyngiomas are also more likely to have associated thirst abnormalities. [8] Posttraumatic head injury: central DI is common following traumatic brain injury Continue reading >>

    I feel sure someone will ask, so: Though I have had the disease for 30 years, I am a well-controlled diabetic; my doctors proclaim themselves pleased with my tests, which I get done faithfully on schedule. Indeed, if I am bottoming out from time to time as I say, I am not in perfect control; I do make mistakes.

  2. I_pity_the_fool

    Drawing from personal experience of your problem, I'm inclined to think it might be because there's just so much of it. When I wake up after a midnight hypo I feel like I've been in a bath. If you've been lying in a hot bed for 5 hours sweating, I'm sure there's more chance for bacteria to fester a bit.
    As an aside - and I know this is kind of an obvious thing to ask - but have you ever tested your blood sugar when waking up from this. My nurse told me that there's a sort of a 'bounce' when the liver releases a whole load of sugar after you've been hypoglycemic for a while. I've been told to watch out for high blood sugar after a night-time hypo.

    Oops that was a fail. Didn't mean to press "post." Feel free to delete that.
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis is what I meant to link to, and what you've got is the opposite. It's not uncommon for over-insulined folks to stink-ass.
    When you're insulin deficient, you smell sweet, somewhere between honeysuckle and acetone. When you've got too much, it's the opposite.

Symptoms Of Diabetes Insipidus In Dogs

How Diabetes Insipidus Affects Dogs Diabetes insipidus is not common in companion animals. However, because the primary clinical sign is production and excretion of abnormally large amounts of urine, when it does happen, owners tend to take notice. Although there are a number of things that can cause or contribute to diabetes insipitus, the symptoms in domestic dogs typically are the same. Symptoms of Diabetes Insipidus Dogs with diabetes insipidus may develop one or more of the following symptoms: Passage of abnormally large amounts of urine (polyuria) Passage of abnormally dilute urine (urine with low specific gravity) Extreme thirst Abnormally increased water intake (polydipsia) Inappropriate elimination (loss of housetraining; urinating in inappropriate places; may be perceived by owners as incontinence) Disorientation Loss of coordination (ataxia) Stupor Seizures Tremors Collapse Dogs at Increased Risk There is no breed, age or gender predisposition in companion dogs for the development of diabetes insipidus. However, dogs with congenital or nephrogenic diabetes insipidus are frequently diagnosed by 6 to 12 months of age, while dogs with central diabetes insipidus (especially Continue reading >>

    Stupid A1c levels

    Ok so when I was diagnosed in September with a A1c of 12.7…so I just got it checked the other day (after badgering my DR…different story), I got the results today…its still 9.2.
    I have been telling my doctor that I need something more done, because telling me that I'm on a sliding scale but I have no clue what the scale is, and not paying attention to anything I tell him, have been screwing me up, not him, ME!!!
    So I got ahold of my insurance company and switched doctors today…hopefully I can get something better done now…I mean it's my life, my body, and I'm not willing to waste away to nothing of a human being because my doctor doesn't know or can't give a bother to help me.
    Ok I'm better now, thanks for letting me vent.
    Blessed Be

    Hey, down is better than up and you can see you are going in the right direction. Just think, if you dropped 3 points this go, by your next A1c you might just be at 6. Maybe look at it that way. It is all confusing. I am on metformin and now combatting some 200's again. I have not had those for a long time. It sucks and it is confusing. Just keep on working at it. You will get it. It is a good thing to switch up doctors sometimes, they just don't know enough to really help you. I hope your new one is better.

  3. Sarguillo

    Vicki, its an up hill battle. 9.2 is better than 12.7 Hopefully your new doctor will explain what your sliding scale is and will work with you on your issues. Good luck, dont give up. I know you can do it.

Diabetes Insipidus (di) — Causes And Symptoms

Diabetes insipidus (DI) is an uncommon medical condition caused by the decreased secretion or action of antidiuretic hormone (ADH), a.k.a. vasopressin. This condition is characterized by polyuria (urinary output more than 3 L per day) and hypo-osmolar urine (the urinary osmolality < 300 mOsm/kg). There are two forms of diabetes insipidus: central DI and nephrogenic DI. In the central form of the disease, there is a decreased secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH). On the other hand, nephrogenic DI is characterized by the inability of the kidneys to concentrate urine despite the availability of ADH. This is known as ADH resistance. Anatomy of the Pituitary Gland The pituitary gland (hypophysis) lies in a pocket (hypophyseal/sphenoidal fossa) of the sphenoid bone at the base of the brain. It is divided into the anterior (adenohypophysis) and the posterior (neurohypophysis) pituitary glands. The neurohypophysis is controlled by the nervous system and only produces two hormones: vasopressin and oxytocin. Antidiuretic hormone (ADH), also known as vasopressin, regulates body water levels and blood pressure. Oxytocin, on the other hand, plays important roles in parturition and breast fee Continue reading >>

    i was terminated within my 90 probation period (day 80, if i recall) in october for "inappropriate conduct". i had a 30 day and 60 day review that were fine and i was fired 5 days after asking my PM about why the other PTF(hired a week before me) in our small town PO was getting more hours than i was ( i was shipped out to 4 other POs in those 80 days, she was mostly in our PO). i am a Type 1 diabetic with hypoglycemic unawareness and shortly after that conversation (which i thought was perfectly normal) i had to stop working and eat food as i was shaky and sweaty and i knew i had a low blood sugar.
    the day i was terminated i was told by a different PM (who was called in right before lunchtime) that i was being let go for anger management issues. keep in mind, the incident happened on a monday, i was let go on that friday. there is also a personal connection with the PM. i happen to know something very personal about his family (which is quite sordid. i would never have mentioned it but i felt that once he knew who i was and what i knew, he was quite cold to me, to the point of shaking his head and giving me disapproving looks anytime i stepped away to test my blood sugar. seriously, the guy never smiled at me, never asked me about my family, never made any kind of personal connection with me, meanwhile, when the other PTF was in the office, he joked around with her and was very personable with her. it was weird.)
    i have no recollection of that conversation being anything but normal. he claims i raised my voice and cited another instance at another PO that the PM (who was called in to fire me) claims i raised my voice and raised my arms when i responded to her about a mistake i made. there is a witness(a PTF) in the the latter case who says that didn't happen (according to the union rep, when i asked for clarification and she called witnesses and other PMs and employees who worked with me). according to my union rep, he called the powers that be and was given permission to fire me on the spot.
    there were no warnings, no conversations about my demeanor, nothing. i left a good company with excellent benefits to take this job. i beat out 16 other applicants for the job. i have an excellent work history with my other company for the past 13 years and can use them as a reference if needed. they all knew me and understood that if i was not myself, all they had to do was ask me if i would test my blood sugar or hand me a juice or food. I told every single PM that i worked with that if they ever found me to be strange or animated to do the same. i am very compliant with anyone who points out to me that i am acting *weird* because i don't always know when it's happening.
    long story short, type 1 diabetes is a recognized disability. my PM knew i had it and did not respond in a proper manner when i may have acted inappropriately. it's possible i may have raised my voice, i have no memory of doing so, but that is not uncommon with someone who is having a hypoglycemic episode.
    i've filed a complaint with the EEOC(at the suggestion of my union rep), in an attempt to get my job back. does anyone have any thoughts about how to proceed and how i can possibly win? i'm not looking for a settlement, i want my job back.
    thanks for reading, i will check back if anyone has questions i will try to answer as best i can.

    The union reps will always suggest doing whatever you can to fight a termination, but normally have no authority in the matter until probation has been passed. Depending on your state laws, in most cases probation is at-will, they can let you go for any reason or without a reason during that time. Based on your post, they have witnesses that backed up the anger management problem. For you to have any chance at all of fighting this on the basis of an EEOC complaint of discrimination, you will have to produce written evidence of that "episode" being their reason for the firing, and a medical report from your doctor verifying that your condition could have caused you to behave in an inappropriate manner. You would also have to prove that the person firing you knew about your condition, otherwise they could not have discriminated. Did you ever ask them for accommodations such as breaks on short notice to take medication or food?

    WTH are POs and PTFs? Is PM a project manager? Or is PO post office and PM postmaster?! Apparently you really drank the koolaid if you think others outside know these acronyms. How can anyone answer without knowing the context of your job?
    ...hah...I'll try though...did you have an "accommodation" related to your diabetes such that you were given extra time to check your glucose and extra leeway for odd behavior due to low blood sugar? it seems that even so, the "LBS" would have to be shown to have immediately preceded and been in place while the behavior took place. Being diabetic doesn't give someone license to get angry, etc. at any time.

    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 ...
