Information about Diabetes Insipidus

A rare disease, diabetes insipidus is a medical condition that occurs when the kidneys stop filtering urine normally. This results in a person urinating large volumes of fluid and always being thirsty.
 
People with diabetes insipidus are likely to urinate frequently, even at night, which can disrupt sleep or, on occasion, cause bedwetting. Because of the excretion of abnormally large volumes of dilute urine, you may quickly become dehydrated if you do not drink enough water. In children, symptoms may include irritability, listlessness, and fever.
