967947 tn?1258877059 If the levels are so low maybe a creatinine clearance test should be done to test the condition of the kidney and rule out diabetes insipidus. CPK or creatinine phosphokinase and liver enzymes should be done if there is muscle wasting. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn You should be eating a lower carb, higher healthy fat diet. Diabetes is certainly a valid concern. And type 1 diabetes can be triggered by a recent illness, particularly if you were already predisposed / prediabetic. This an develop very quickly (over a period od days to weeks). I think you need a new Hba1c and you should also request a glucose tolerance test. Has there been any new changes in your fasting blood sugar or post eating blood sugars (do you have a home meter?
Avatar m tn Another question. When you say you have frequent urination, do you mean you urinate excessive amounts of urine each time or you just need to make frequent trips to the bathroom, maybe only urinating smaller amounts each time? Your blood sugars sound pretty good to me. Blood sugar in the 80's is perfect - so you were in the 70's and low 90's - it doesn't scream diabetes. And you said you are "somewhat thirsty". Another question: How long have you been in this country?
Avatar n tn Carbamazepine should be immediately discontinued if evidence of aggravated liver dysfunction or active liver disease is observed. Complete urinalysis and BUN determinations should also be performed prior to and periodically during carbamazepine therapy. Carbamazepine may exacerbate seizures in some children with mixed seizure disorders.
Avatar m tn Will be taking the Lithium for 3 to 4 months max. Before taking the Li had my creatinine and BUN checked and both were fine. Urine test results(for protein, gravity, etc) are still pending. Had an abdominal ultrasound a few months ago for other reasons and kidneys were normal. I assume that blood/urine tests every few monmths would be wise and possibly prevent or catch any problems?
Avatar m tn i did all testes under normal circumstances , blood sugar normal only my cholesterol is little high they have advised diet + exercise as i am overweight This freuent urination is on and off and fatty liver may be beacsue i drink too much they say they say there is no concern as all the ecg,echo,scan of abdomen so no issues with any of the organs or the glands any way will see an edno and thanks for your valuable feedback
Avatar f tn who just saw me for the first time last week and thinks I may have diabetes insipidus. Here are my most recent labs. Most are normal but the Cortisol (ACTH) stim test results and Urine Osmo. I have a brain MRI next week to r/o Pit. damage or tumor. I just want to know that there is a reason for all of this besides diabetes insipidus, which I know causes polyuria and polydipsia. But what about the back pain and other issues? Do the following lab results indicate another issue besides DI?
4848134 tn?1360123266 Low protein diet is another factor. Since urine specific gravity is low, you either have diabetes insipidus or are over hydrated. You need to discuss all this with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.

1916673 tn?1420236870 Corticosteroid medications (such as prednisone), Cushing’s disease, diabetes insipidus, an excessive use of laxatives and salty foods in the diet can all produce high sodium results. In end-stage chronic kidney failure, when kidney function is seriously undermined, sodium levels can fall. Low sodium levels are also common with prolonged vomiting and/or diarrhea.
Avatar f tn I am thirsty so I drink and apparently it is alot. There is a form of diabetes insipidus that is mental and I hope I am not doing that. I don't think so though becuase I am thirsty. If I don't drink I feel really bad and get really dry mouth/skin/HA's. I guess I will find out soon what is wrong with me. Pit MRI next tue and if there is no tumor then I have to do a water deprivation test. Ughh.
172023 tn?1334675884 At that time there was basically nothing for dogs w/ diabetes. I also bought a human diabetic cook book and made foods/treats for him with that. So maybe there are cook books w/ recipes for people who have urinary stones too?
10286430 tn?1409052092 however, the presence of a rapidly growing sellar tumor, diabetes insipidus, ophthalmoplegia and headaches in an older patient strongly suggests metastasis to the pituitary. Since the anterior pituitary has a great reserve capacity, metastasis to the pituitary and pituitary involvement in lymphoma are usually asymptomatic. Whereas diabetes insipidus is the most frequent symptom, patients can present with headaches, ophthalmoplegia and bilateral hemianopsia.
4524270 tn?1355881950 OK, polyuria may result from being hyperthyroid. I am not diabetic, but may have partial diabetes insipidus (according to a water deprivation test, and low ADH). Because I have hyperparathyroidism, my ionized Ca is too high at least part of the time. In hyperparathyroidism the kidneys cannot conserve water, because of incorrect functioning of ADH, although it were present. Maybe hypercalcemia, caused by any reason, can cause water loss. Those who are hyperthyroid may have slight hypercalcemia.
Avatar f tn ADH is water diabetes, NOT sugar - totally different! It means you drink a lot, and pee a lot. I only thought that for the high output - at least, I thought it was high output... look up diabetes insipidus. As for the suppression test... well... the doctor is going to say that if you suppress you are fine and if you do not, then it indicates an issue, however, I failed all suppression tests (there are low dose, high dose etc.
