Understanding Diabetes Insipidus

This video contains a detailed and simplified explanation about diabetes insipidus. We discuss the differences between cranial and nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, the signs and symptoms, testing for diabetes insipidus including an explanation of urine and blood osmolality and the water deprivation test (also known as the desmopressin stimulation test) and how we manage diabetes insipidus.

This video is intended to help with the education and understanding of students of healthcare professions only and is not medical advice. For medical advice see your doctor or other healthcare professional. Whilst significant effort has been taken to make the information accurate it cannot be guaranteed.

  1. I have cranial diabetes Insipidus, I was diagnosed when I was 11 years old. I’ve been drinking my desmopressin since then, at times it gets annoying just cause I always have to have water with me at all times and always know there’s a bathroom near by, but there much worst things to have so I suck it up .

  2. This sounds like a double whammy for people who are taking lithium for a brain injury, which makes me wish to know, how long would one say is the best lithium dosage quantity for someone who has no alternative with which life can be lived, or if there is a universal dosage or duration
