Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes mellitus vs. diabetes insipidus


Avatar n tn I have a rare disease called diabetes insipidus. NO! It is not Diabetes Type 2 or any type of diabetes mellitus that has to do with blood sugar. Mine is often called the "water disease" and is secondary to a brain tumor I had removed on my pituitary gland many years ago. I take a drug called desopressin or DDAVP for my sypmtoms and for the most part it is controlled, although I have to strongly limit my fluid intake to include water.
Avatar n tn Thyroid hormone therapy in patients with concomitant diabetes mellitus or diabetes insipidus or adrenal cortical insufficiency aggravates the intensity of their symptoms. Appropriate adjustments of the various therapeutic measures directed at these concomitant endocrine diseases are required. The therapy of myxedema coma requires simultaneous administration of glucocorticoids.
