INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE DIABETES INSIPIDUS WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is diabetes insipidus?

Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a disorder of body fluids in which a person urinates excessively, releasing very dilute urine and feeling extremely thirsty. It is very different from the more commonly known type of diabetes, diabetes mellitus (DM), in which a person urinates excessively due to her blood sugar level being too high. In contrast, DI results from problems occurring either in a region of the brain called the hypothalamus – a condition called central DI – or from problems in the kidney – a condition called nephrogenic DI.
