Diabetes Insipidus Treatment
Your doctor will treat the underlying cause of your condition, if possible, and your symptoms of DI.
The goal of treatment is to regulate the water balance in your body. This may be achieved in different ways, depending on the type of DI that you have.
Central DI and most cases of Gestational DI may be treated with a synthetic “created” hormone called desmopressin. Desmopressin is used to treat ADH deficiency. It can be taken by injection, nasal spray, or a pill. You should drink fluids only when you are thirsty and not at other times while you are taking desmopression. Cases of Gestational DI that are caused by a thirst mechanism impairment should not be treated with desmopressin. Nephrogenic DI and Dipsogenic DI cannot be treated with desmopressin. However, medications can treat some of the symptoms. People with Nephrogenic DI may need to follow a low sodium or low protein diet.
