Is Anhidrosis (also called hypohidrosis) a condition of diabetes insipidus?

My wife had cushings syndrome, which was treated with an operation to the pituitary gland. Post operation she developed diabetes insipidus. As a result of this condition, she was prescribed to use dexamethasone spray which she uses daily. Although this spray balanced her water intake/urination, she finds it very hard to sweat even after hard exercise.

This brings the question of her having anhidrosis to our minds. However, since she doesn't have any symptoms of dehydration, why would this condition occur?

hydronephrosis happens cause of urinary flow obstruction 60% mechanical obstruction so if she is urinating normaly that can be ruled out.. she os not sweating cause of the spray she is using after consulting to ur doc may be u can decrease the dosage...  (+ info)

what is diabetes insipidus and how is it treated?

Like Diabetes Mellitus, diabetes insipidus can cause symptoms like increase urinary output and thirst, but that is about where the similarities end.

In someone with Diabetes Insipidus, the body outputs a large amount of urine, which is mostly diluted water. As a result, the person will often be very thirsty and if left untreated can lead to dehydration. Typically, DI is caused by problems with the Kidneys or pituitary glands.

Kidney medications are often used to treat most types of DI, but certain types, specifically dipsogenic DI, can not be effectively treated.  (+ info)

What is Insipidus Diabetes? And what are the symptoms?

Diabetes insipidus is a condition in which the kidney cannot concentrate urine. This results in excretion of large amounts of dilute urine. Even if you don't drink, your urine will not become concentrated. This is caused by a deficiency of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or a resistance by the kidneys to ADH. Some medications can also cause this condition.
The main symptom is frequent urination of dilute urine that doesn't change even with decreased fuid intake.  (+ info)

whats the difference between diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus?

Diabetes insulitus and diabetes mellitus are totally different. Diabetes mellitus is what people think of when they hear "diabetes"--it is also called sugar diabetes. It comes in two forms Type I and Type II.

Diabetes insipidus (also called DI) is caused by the lack of the antidiuretic hormone (vasopressin) or the kidney's inability to respond to this hormone.  (+ info)

can water intoxication be a symptom of diabetes insipidus?

Those two terms describe absolutely opposite conditions. Diabetes insipidus is a condition in which the amount of urine produced is very large and the urine is dilute, in effect the body is unable to hold free water, this tends to cause dehydration unless the patient is able to drink very large quantities of water to counterbalance the loss via urine. Water intoxication is caused by drinking too much water, to the point where the body's natural mechanisms of fluid elimination are unable to keep up, causing blood sodium to drop and causing symptoms of hyponatremia. I guess, technically speaking it wouldn't be impossible to develop water intoxication even with diabetes insipidus, but the amount of water that you would need to drink would be very, very large.  (+ info)

Question about diabetes insipidus?

Is headache and lethargy common with Diabeties Insipidus. My 13 year old daughter was in the ER for 5 hours the other night and the doctor suggested diabetes insipidus, gave her some darvocet for the headache and said to follow up with our primary care for an MRI and confirmation of diagnosis. The doctors office is not open on the weekend and the headache has not gone away. Should I take her back to the ER or is this just another symptom of her possible condition?
I am aware of how the disease works, the question I was asking was about headaches in association with it.

headaches are a symptom of dehydration, so it would probably be a common problem associated with DI.

hope she gets sorted and is feeling better soon :(  (+ info)

is diabetes insipidus the same as type 2 diabetes?

is that the same name?
how is type 2 diabetes treated?

No relationship.

Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a condition characterized by excessive thirst and excretion of large amounts of severely diluted urine, with reduction of fluid intake having no effect on the latter. There are several different types of DI, each with a different cause. The most common type is neurogenic DI, caused by a deficiency of arginine vasopressin (AVP), also known as antidiuretic hormone (ADH). The second common type of DI is nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, which is caused by an insensitivity of the kidneys to ADH. It can also be an iatrogenic artifact of drug use

Diabetes Mellitus and Insipidus?

What are recommended treatments for Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus?

Diabetes Mellitus

Treatment of diabetes involves diet, exercise, education, and, for most people, drugs. If people with diabetes strictly control blood sugar levels, complications are less likely to develop. The goal of diabetes treatment, therefore, is to keep blood sugar levels within the normal range as much as possible. Treatment of high blood pressure and cholesterol levels can prevent some of the complications of diabetes as well. A low dose of aspirin Some Trade Names
BAYER taken daily is also helpful.
