Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes insipidus symptoms weight loss


Avatar m tn If you are concerned about losing weight and not putting any weight on, increase your calorie intake for the day eating a healthy and well balanced diet. Weight loss and lack of weight gain can simply be to the fact that you are not taking in enough calories and burning more calories that you are taking in.
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.
Avatar f tn If he is missing the water retaining hormone called vasopressin from the pituitary or has a low level of it, he will drink excessively and have diluted urine and at times usually excessively drink to keep up, Diabetes insipidus is what this is called, often termed water diabetes, rare and unlikely but he can dip a urine and check the salts in his blood, over time if he ends up getting workup done and imaging is done an mri of the pituitary would also help look at that area of the brain, this is
Avatar f tn One of the things that has made me frustrated with my stable of Dr's has been that they pass my symptoms off - mostly my weight gain - to my meds. I don't know if you are on meds. I am. This is what I did to counter the dismissals I get. So, mostly out of anger at being dismissed I did my own research. I also wanted to find out if any of the meds were contraindicated with each other.
Avatar n tn just out of habit...I feel like..weird if i don't. Then....after no major weight loss or gain.... I suddenly in June (just in time for swimsuit season....and I live on the coast in TX...so it sucked) I went from my 140 on a "fat" day....to 220 by the middle of August. So, in a month and a half I gained nearly 100 lbs. I never changed my eating or exercise habits until early September when for some reason I kept getting weaker and weaker....
Avatar n tn What maybe concerning is the thirst being associated with increased urination , loss of continence especially if your son has already gained bladder control and most specifically if he is losing weight). These could be the symptoms and signs of diabetes mellitus or insipidus. Another sign that maybe concerning is the white grey stools. Stool color depends on what you eat and the percentage of bile pigment incorporated into the making of the stool color.
Avatar m tn My dry mouth was even noticed by my dentist. Worried it might be diabetes insipidus (which can have many serious causes). I have trouble swallowing food. Single enlarged posterior cervical lymph node (right side of neck)--I found it on Oct 3--so it's been there a month (possibly longer--since it is non-tender. After 3 weeks, I saw an ENT, who seemed not too concerned.
Avatar m tn ) No blood Slight Diarrhea every other day. Slight soft pain in upperchest (Liver/heart area) mainly after mealtimes/snacks. Weight loss. Tight Breathing (mainly after mealtimes/snacks). I have no allergies, take no drugs and do not drink.
Avatar n tn I have been on a strict weight loss program for 8 weeks and have not lost any weight (by the way, I am a dietitian). My TSH level is normal, but no other tests have been done. I have constant yeast issues, not limited to vaginal yeast infections. I have a hx of HPV, but have been "normal" for years. I have been on elimination diets and seem to be mildly more comfortable with the elimination of wheat and corn. Does ANYBODY have anything to help me?
1522652 tn?1291241954 serum and urine osmolality, S Na+ and copeptin, which is a marker of ADH. On next week S aldosterone, renin, Na+, K+ anf Mg++ will be measured (to find possible hyperladosteronism; I often have hypernatremia). I think that my kidneys cannot concentrate urine because HPT causes them not to react to ADH. They waste water, and my serum becomes concentrated. I have problems with my ears. I am afraid that hypercalcemia could change the ionic compositon of the endolymph in my vestibular apparatus.
Avatar f tn We tried to start her on an antibiotic but that coincided with loss of appetite. Stopping of antibiotic had no effect. Dramatic weight loss and weakness are increasing. Any ideas?
617037 tn?1292263823 I left the hospital on demopressin, but surprisingly the need cleared up and later I found that diabetes insipidus can occur due to trauma. Since they went up through my nasal passage to remove the tumor, and grafted skin from the groin area , it was a trauma to that area. There is so much more known now.
Avatar f tn He said there are many tests to do to check for diabetes and many forms of diabetes. Taking my symptoms, weight loss, constant urination (dehydration at times from constant urination), always getting thirsty in the middle of the night leads him to suspect some sort of diabetes. Seeing as we have ruled out anorexia for the weight loss, I eat constantly, but never feel full, like i have an empty stomach. I also have night sweats.
Avatar m tn There are two other things that should be ruled out. One is diabetes which results in high blood sugar and the other is diabetes insipidus (causes loss of fluid through increased urination). I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn I'm stumped and I've stumped by Endo NP, who has never seen a case like mine. Originally presented as hypothyroid, now have had weight loss and other symptoms that we wouldn't expect to see with my constantly DECLINING thyroid levels.
Avatar n tn Hi Very thirsty, drinking a lot of water and urinating a lot along with losing weight—you must get evaluated both for diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus. Diabetes mellitus is a disease of pancreas with these symptoms. Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a disease of adrenal gland and/or of pituitary in the brain. Both the problems can co-exist in a person. In DI the kidney is unable to concentrate urine. Potassium levels are low in the blood.
Avatar f tn Our son was born without the posterior end of his pituitary gland and because of this abnormality suffers from a condition called Diabetes Insipidus (water diabetes). Also, he does not have other migraine symptoms such as nausea, sensitvity to light and noise. We are trying to get answers to help us solve this mystery and to alleviate some of his symptoms. Your help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with diabetes insipidus a few months ago and it gets worse when my anxiety goes up, I have a very stressful job and work from home. If I needed to pin point when I started feeling "down" it was probably when I had my 2nd son about 4 yrs ago. Feeling trapped in my own home, don't like to leave my house, I yell a lot and have completely loss interest in being intimate with my husband.
Avatar m tn Fatigue, lethargy, transient scotomata, dehydration, weight loss, tendency to sleep.

Avatar n tn Hi there- No your tumor should not be just dismissed. However, In the world of pituitary disease 2 weeks is a “blink” so try to be patient. Many of us spend year(s) before we actually have surgery if it is warrented. I used to have a cyst that was about the same size as yours. I had surgery in 2006 to remove it. I had a lot nasal symptoms that were due to something else.
Avatar m tn Have you looked at POTS - google it
Avatar f tn He sent me to and Endocrinologist, but all she tested for was the ADH to see if i had Central Diabetes Insipidus. Don't have.
Avatar f tn If the dose is slightly too high, the symptoms may be - weight gaining or difficulty to drop weight - fluid retention - excess drowsiness in the morning and evening - good sleeping - polyuria - hair loss - joint and muscle pain - pain in the backside of neck - muscle weakness or tightness - constriction in upper abdomen during walking - sometimes low heart rate On a slightly lower dose: - sleeping not good - hunger - polyuria - dehydration - weight dropping On much higher dose: - broken slee
Avatar n tn I had the exhaustion and depression--and a bunch of weight loss when my cortisol was low. sometimes i think my body just doesn't do anything normal. I am curious about how iron and ferritin come in to all of this. My ferritin levels are a bit lower than my doc would like---but i know that he is a little different and doesn't goes by "lab normals", but he goes by levels for optimal health.
Avatar m tn Long befor I knew abt the pit cyst I had multiple unexplained problems. bouts of severe unexplained weight loss. Dehydration and or relentless vomiting that would send me to the ER. I have had some very serious experiences (low blood pressure, hemolysis, potassium levels that have led to ICU and long hospital stays and testing. one was post trauma, the other 2 after my C-sections. The cause has always been unclear, though I ultimately was given steroids on the 3 most serious occasions.
Avatar f tn Hair loss is a symptom of being hypo; however, weight loss is most often related to hyper, though some people who are hypo do lose weight. Fatigue and muscle weakness can also be symptoms of hyper, as is increased appetite. Helyanna, you FT3's have been leaning toward the high side, indicating slight over medication. You should retest in a couple weeks and see where your levels are. Are you still on the 2.0 grains ERFA?
Avatar f tn You could be tired because of thyroid, growth hormone and/or Cushing's. You might also have diabetes insipidus. I have this and when i don't take meds I pee and drink every 20-30 mins. This can exhaust a a person, especially at night. The standard test for this is called a water deprivation test. You could do is track your input and output...drinking as much water as you need. This right there might show a pattern that would justify formal testing for DI. There must be some good endos in NC?
Avatar m tn Breathing issues- spontaneous pulmonary hypertension, episodes of acute bronchitis, bronchial spasms. 10. Systemic issues- Mild hypothermia, episodes of rapid weight loss, temporary intense joint pain, infrequent episodes of diabetes insipidus.
Avatar f tn hypothyroidism(and suspected but not confirmed diabetes insipidus–but not diabetes (blood sugar is fine or sometimes low), seems to indicate there IS an HPA-axis thing going on. This correlates w/high-dose antibiotics I took in the hospital damaging the pituitary or the septic shock and infection destroying the pituitary. Considering I'm still in pain, though improved, and I'm not scheduled to go back until August, what should I do? Are there other tests I should be asking for?
