What Is Central Diabetes Insipidus?
If your central DI is mild, the treatment for central DI is simple: Drink more water.
In some cases, your doctor may prescribe desmopressin or DDAVP, which is a type of vasopressin. Desmopressin controls urine output, maintains fluid balance, and prevents dehydration. You take it two to three times a day, usually as a nasal spray, tablets, or injections.
Carry your medication with you and avoid situations where you can't get water. It's also a good idea to wear "medic alert" jewelry, or keep a note with you about your condition, so that health care workers know about it.
