Avatar m tn Adding a complicating wrench into everything is the fact that she was diagnosed earlier this week with Diabetes Insipidus, and has numerous issues with keeping her sodium levels under adequate control (they have been persistently in 171-176) and maintaining an appropriate fluid balance and replacing her excessively high urine output.
Avatar f tn I do not have a thyroid. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced diabetes insipidus? The reason for the test is because I have been extremely thirsty and urinating almost every 1.5 hours a day. I received a copy of the test results. They tested my ADH level (arginine vasopressin) The results are L<1.0 Range:1.0-13.3  They say there are different types of diabetes insipidus, basically that the kidneys are not doing what they are supposed to do or a pituitary issue.

Avatar m tn Polyuria can happen from different problems other than diabetes. Are you drinking too much coffee, too much alcohol - these drinks will dehydrate you. In diabetes, if you your sugar levels are too high, you will want to urinate more often. This is the kidneys trying to rid the excess glucose in the body. Having a urinary infection can also cause frequent urination. You should make an appointment to see your doctor. Take a morning mid stream urine sample to be tested.
Avatar m tn There are many causes of frequent urination including diabetes mellitus or diabetes insipidus, kidney problems, urinary tract infections and more. For starters have a urinalysis, and blood work performed. Don't forget behavioral causes. Has there been any changes in the environment that could cause a desire for more attention? Any new additions to the family?
278016 tn?1220194704 I have been having mutliple health problems for four years shorty after having mono, and kidney stones which were a year and a half apart. Focusing on the kidneys they are constantly sore. When I eat certain foods, especially salty foods, i urinate even more frequently, and leak urine. I have been to a urologist and my bladder is perfectly healthy.
Avatar f tn Decreased vasopressin release or decreased renal sensitivity to vasopressin leads to diabetes insipidus, a condition featuring hypernatremia (increased blood sodium content), polyuria (excess urine production), and polydipsia (thirst). Diabetes isn't the only thing that can cause problems. If she hit her head, an injury could have "broken" the membrane or gland (I can't remember exactly how it works) in the brain that controls proper regulation.
Avatar m tn What about the breathing problems? Would this be common in 'diabetes insipidus'.
Avatar n tn This little hormone, according to endos, controls how much water your body keeps in. read about diabetes insipidus or SIADH as those are the standard disorders endos run into involving ADH. But the paper says it also plays a role in regulating ACTH production thus adding a whole extra-complicated-addition to how cortisol secretion is controlled. Most endos don't even know the pathway exists so are not in a position to understand how it might effect the HPA axis.
Avatar m tn The endocrinologist said I did not have diabetes insipidus and told me he did not have any other ideas. The urologist then ordered urodynamics, which showed nothing unusual except for muscle tension of the urinary sphincter muscle (he diagnosed it as "sphincter dyssynergia"). The urologist prescribed terazosin 2 mg once per day, which I have been taking for almost 2 weeks with no effect on frequency or urgency so far.
Avatar f tn Doc narrorwed it down to diabetes insipidus or neurological (meaning she's neurotic). We have to test specific gravity and go from there. If it's normal, she's doing it to herself out of boredom. Ugh.
489228 tn?1291535054 I am now seeing an Endocrinologist, investigating for Cushings and/or Hyperparathyroid, maybe Diabetes Insipidus?

I am awaiting results of blood tests for Prolactin, Liver Function Test, Serum Calcium, Kidney Funtion and Thyroid and maybe others can't remember, PTH blood test has to be done in hospital.....waiting for result of free urinery cortisol test too..
Avatar f tn Have you been tested for diabetes insipidus and kidney problems?

Avatar m tn Chronic lithium use can affect the kidneys causing a variety of kidney disorders such as nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, renal tubular acidosis, nephrotic syndrome and chronic interstitial nephritis. Normally, the lithium level is drawn every 4-5 days during initial therapy. If the lithium levels are within normal levels, then it is less likely that it can affect the kidneys. If there are signs of kidney toxicity, then blood tests for creatinine and BUN should certainly be considered.
Avatar n tn Prolonged sweating, infections, drinking too much water, diabetes insipidus, adrenal gland dysfunction, kidney and liver problems, prolonged diarrhea,or vomiting, certain medications etc can all cause low sodium in the blood. This is a serious issue and needs to be investigated. You need to consult a doctor and run tests to find the cause. Treatment is to increase fluid—not water—intake. So drink clear soups, lemonade, juices, oral rehydration solutions etc.
1538488 tn?1331486905 Hi! Prolonged sweating, infections, drinking too much water, diabetes insipidus, adrenal gland dysfunction, kidney and liver problems, prolonged diarrhea, or vomiting, certain medications etc can all cause low sodium in the blood. In your mother's case it can be due to her BP medication or the kidney getting damaged due to high BP. This is a serious issue and needs to be investigated. Please discuss this with her treating doctor. Treatment is to increase fluid—not water—intake.
1522652 tn?1291241954 I know that there is a link beginning with my chronic uti's as a child, to my severe pms as an adolecent into adulthood, and then on to my chronic kidney stones and infections as an adult, and then the loss of my kidney, as well as the problems I'm experiencing now. My question is what specific tests do I need to request to accurately check my thyroid, parathyroid, and my calcium levels? Also, are there any specific questions that I need to ask.
Avatar f tn Other possibilities are diabetes insipidus, glomerulonephritis, pyelonephritis(inflammation of the kidneys),urinary tract infection, hypercalcemia, hypokalemia(low potassium),hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, diuretic drugs and benign hyperplasia of the prostate(in males).
Avatar f tn Hello, Polyuria or urinating more than normal can be due to polydipsia or excessive fluid intake, which can be psychogenic, glucosuria in diabetes mellitus, Vasopressin or ADH deficiency as in central diabetes insipidus due to hypothalamic or pituitary disorders, resistance to ADH action at the site of renal tubules as in nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, chronic renal failure with concentration defect or structural malformations of kidney like obstructive uropathy, hydronephrosis.
Avatar m tn diabetes kidney or bladder infections kidney disease or kidney failure Also, the weakness is long gone. My urine color is normal, no blood or difficulty starting a stream. I just have an uncomfortable urge all the time. Sometimes I feel burning sensations in my penis as well, and last week, I started feeling burning in my feet, and sometimes all over my body. I don't know what else to do. I am getting up 3 to 4 times at night to pee,and this is very upsetting to me.

Avatar f tn This looks like diabetes insipidus which is a rare disease due to imbalance of the water cycle in the body. It can cause raging thirst, loss of appetite, poor sweating, fever, and generally causes a lot of urination. However if the water intake in not much or if te kidney is involved, then the urine output can decrease. Please consult an internal medicine specialist or talk to your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted.
Avatar m tn It can be also due to excessive intake of liquids, diuretic substances (including tea, caffeine, alcohol, certain drugs), anxiety, exposure to cold, diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus (central or nephrogenic), urinary tract infections or obstruction, etc to name a few more common ones. I suggest you to take opinion of your doctor who would do a clinical examination and advice for needful tests. I hope it helps.

Avatar f tn This can also be the result of diseases like diabetes mellitus (DM) and diabetes insipidus (DI). Heart, liver and kidney problems and also certain medications cause excessive thirst. DI is pretty rare. DM is very common. A comprehensive investigation is required to know why you have this problem. The blackouts and fatigue may be related to this problem. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn It could possibly be Diabetes Insipidus, it is completely unrelated to Diabetes Mellitus and has nothing to do with blood sugar. When people think "Diabetes" and doctors test for "Diabetes" it's usually for Diabetes Mellitus. Diabetes Insipidus has to do with a hormone that triggers your body to retain water. If that hormone decreases (or is absent), then your body won't retain the necessary amount of water it needs.
Avatar n tn Get her checked for diabetes insipidus. Regardless of what it could be, please get her checked...asap...could be kidney problems..
