If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes insipidus, some lifestyle changes can help you effectively treat and manage the condition. Exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet, prioritizing quality sleep and not smoking can all help promote good overall health. Your medical team may recommend a specialized diet that’s low in salt and protein. You should also talk with your medical provider about your fluid intake. With some types of diabetes insipidus, you need more fluids; but in others, like when being treated with synthetic ADH, you should drink only when thirsty.
