    Diabetes Insipidus Directory

    Diabetes insipidus (DI) is not the same as the more well-known diabetes mellitus. Some symptoms are similar to both conditions, including increased urination and thirst. ADH, also called vasopressin, helps conserve and regulates water balance within the body. A reduction in the secretion of this hormone results in diabetes insipidus. The condition can also result from a diminished response of the kidneys to ADH, which renders them incapable of conserving water. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how diabetes insipidus is caused, how to treat it, and much more.
