What is Diabetes Insipidus?

Diabetes insipidus occurs when the kidney cannot retain water. Symptoms of diabetes insipidus includes extreme thirst and an unusually large amount of urine. Diabetes insipidus can be caused by a lack of the antidiuretic hormone or if the kidneys do not have a response to the hormone.

Treatment for diabetes insipidus includes treating the underlying condition and taking medication. A common drug class used to treat diabetes insipidus is the vasopressins drug class.
