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 I have measured urine output between 5-6 liters a day, and my water consumption is nowhere near that high. My understanding is that polyuria is comorbid with diabetes, but I don't believe that my modest blood glucose readings would lead to this much urination. I am literally peeing full bladders (16-24 oz.) 10 or more times a day, and 3-4 times at night alone ( I wake up to pee every few hours).
Avatar n tn Vasopressin reduces urine output. So in cases where there is increased urine formation as in diabetes insipidus and in cases where urine output needs to be temporarily delayed as in bed wetting, Desmopressin is prescribed. Take care!
Avatar m tn look up diabetes insipidus.......
Avatar f tn She never mentioned anything about insulin and that's because she has Diabetes Insipidus, which she clearly stated. Diabetes Insipidus IS NOT Diabetes Mellitus.
154765 tn?1237251544 Frequent urination can be caused by a lot of conditions, including urinary tract infections, bladder conditions such as interstitial cystitis, nephritis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and some metabolic conditions such as diabetes mellitus or diabetes insipidus. You should have your symptoms evaluated by a physician. Good luck.
Avatar f tn coffee and alcohol will cause increased urine output as will “water pills” (diuretics). Diabetes mellitus can also be a cause but the urine would not appear dilute. Diabetes insipidus, a failure of the kidneys to keep water in the body, can be caused by the kidneys themselves or a failure of hormone production (vasopressin, or ADH—antidiuretic hormone). All of these problems are correctable, but you will have to go to physician t get evaluated.. Good luck!, S.A. Liroff, M.D.
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 I have been having progressively increasing thirst with high urine output. Now, I have dry mouth and excessive thirst. 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 f tn Ok, first off-the reason why my endocrinologist thinks I don't need my ddavp pill anymore is because he said my sodium level has never went low (I think he said it gets either extremely low or high when you have diabetes insipidus). I also went for a urine test called urine specific gravity right before I take my next dose of the pill. He said it came back fine/normal-which I think ment my urine was fine without the pill.
Avatar n tn I am a 38yo f who is s/p posterior fossa craniectomy 10/02 for right CPA arachnoid cyst fenestration. Prior to surgery had severe dizziness and occasional vertigo. The cyst was enlarging (post CT myelogram) and I had complete resolution of symptoms. Following surgery noticed galactorrhea and nocturia. MRI w/ pituitary sequence revealed microademoma approx 6 x 8. All hormone levels including prolactin normal. I have recently started experiencing vertigo and dizziness with urine output >3.
Avatar f tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Extreme thirst is seen in diabetes, both diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus. You need to get your blood sugar and adrenal gland function done along with kidney function test. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn My first thing i would mention is have you been tested for diabetes insipidus? If not then i would mention it to your doctor for further testing. Also you talk of headaches , tinnitus, and leg cramps, along with fatigue and many more symptoms.... I know you look to have had an endocrine work-up, missing the testing for diabetes, and diabetes insipidus...
Avatar f tn His A1C fluctuates but is till within normal range. He's been tested for diabetes insipidus and so his symptoms are not from that. He had a MRI to check for a tumor on his pituitary gland. He has a small cyst near it but not on it and it's very small the ped neurologist said it wasn't causing his symptoms. We've seen 3 different doctors one being a endo and have been told his blood sugars are not normal but not off enough to be diabetes.
15440293 tn?1440623937 I notice that when I wake up in the morning or if I go a couple hours without drinking water that my urine is very dark (Apple Cider/Tea colored), Somewhat burns when I output, dry mouth, thirsty, brainfog, facial and body flushing, skin feels hot to touch, out of it, muscles feel very tense and achey.....
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.

She never mentioned this to me, her staff just said everything was normal. Do you think I should go to another endcrinologist?
Avatar m tn Transient electroencephalographic and electrocardiographic changes, leucocytosis, headache, diffuse non-toxic goiter with or without hypothyroidism, transient hyperglycemia, generalized pruritis with or without rash, cutaneous ulcers, albuminuria, worsening of organic brain syndromes, excessive weight gain, edematous swelling of ankles or wrists, and thirst or polyuria, sometimes resembling diabetes insipidus, and metallic taste.
Avatar f tn I did have excessive dopamine in 24 hour urine test as well as a huge output of 5000mL. I knew I always urinated alot but never knew it was that crazy. Then I was sent to a Endo. 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.
7734321 tn?1393763564 In recovery I started vomiting and they decided to keep me in recovery till I stopped. Also 1 hr post surgery i developed Diabetes Insipidus. I was passing 900ml of urine every 20 minutes. They were throwing fluids into me as fast as i passed them out. Finally at 2130 hrs they transferred me to the high dependency unit. Here my sister and my partner had been waiting for me since 1700hrs. The next day apparently I had severe left sided weakness and my right pupil wasn't responding to light.

Avatar f tn Hello Does anyone else have secondary hypothyroidism following their surgery? God knows the Acromegaly aftermath was bad enough to sort out with Dr. Now this to deal with. She's just done my bloods. Should she test TRH as well masTSH, T3 and T4 in this case or am I wrong? No guidance from consultan,t who eventually diagnosed the thyroid damage, only to begin taking 50 mcg of Thyroxine. Taking this at 5 am to avoid absorption problems. Can't stop urinating.Its driving me nuts. Its the urge one.

Avatar n tn increased urine output)? Have you gone to an ENT to get tested for vestibular problems? What about getting tested for CMV, HIV, other immunity problems and cortisol levels? Also, too much stress can lower immunity, and judging by your being on two anti-depressants and a benzodiazapine derivative, I would guess that you are under a tremendous amount of stress. Does your primary care doctor/psychiatrist know you are on two different anti-depressants?
Avatar m tn If you are doing this from thirst, it could be a pituitary problem - diabetes insipidus. In that case you need testing. If it is the former, you should simply cut down on the water and your electrolytes will balance - if the latter then you need testing. As you say you are not thirsty - I would cut down on the fluids.
1063463 tn?1302278219 I don't know about the cold and adrenals - I thought that was thyroid... The urine output could be pituitary - diabetes insipidus - so check that out. Delays in responding - out of town due to family emergency.
Avatar n tn They include too much fluid intake, too much salt or glucose (if diabetic), diabetes (both diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus), renal failure or sickle cell anemia. It is not directly related to the amount of water you drink, but rather to the osmolality of your serum 2) Dehydration is a clinical evaluation made by your physician. If you are dehydrated, there will be fluctuations in your electrolytes, fainting, changes in your vital signs all depending on the severity of the case.
