How does gestational diabetes insipidus affect women?

ANSWER

Gestational diabetes insipidus is a rare condition that only happens during pregnancy. It can make you so thirsty you drink many glasses of water a day. As a result, you might go to the bathroom more than once or twice an hour. Other symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and weakness.
