Diabetes insipidus is uncommon condition in which the kidneys are not able to stop the excretion of water. DI is not the same as diabetes mellitus types 1 and 2. Untreated, both DI and diabetes mellitus cause constant thirst and regular peeing. People with diabetes mellitus have high blood glucose since the body is unable to use blood glucose for energy. Those with DI have normal blood glucose levels, yet their kidneys are unable to stabilize liquid and salt in the body. DI occurs when the kidneys can not concentrate the urine normally, and a large amount of weaken urine is secreted. Diabetes insipidus is not associated to diabetes, however it does share several of the same signs and symptoms. The 2 main symptoms of diabetes insipidus are: severe thirst; peeing a lot, even at evening. Additionally see your GP if you're: peeing more than normal, most healthy adults pass urine 4 to 7 times in a 24-hour period; needing to pee small quantities at regular periods, often this can occur along with the feeling that you require to pee immediately. People feel thirsty as the body tries to make up for the increased loss of water by increasing the quantity of water taken in. While most individuals make 1 to 3 quarts of urine a day, people with diabetes insipidus can make up to 20 quarts of urine a day. They may also feel thirsty regularly and drink lots of fluids, a condition called polydipsia. In diabetes insipidus, your blood glucose degrees are normal, but your kidneys can not correctly concentrate urine. Diabetes insipidus is unusual, influencing about 1 in 25,000 people worldwide.
