How Does Diabetes Insipidus Affect You?

Q: 

What is diabetes insipidus? And what are the common symptoms?

 

A:

Diabetes insipidus is different from diabetes. However, they do share same symptoms as extreme thirst and passing large amounts of urine, even at night.

Diabetes insipidus is related to the antidiuretic hormone (ADH). In general, your hypothalamus produces ADH which is stored in pituitary gland. With ADH, your kidneys make urine concentrated.When you’re thirsty, your ADH levels rise. More water will be reabsorbed in your kidneys, making concentrated urine. If you drink too much, ADH levels fall and your urine comes dilute.
