Every diabetes case is different. We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan according to your specific needs. The choice of treatment depends upon the severity of increased urine output. Your plan may use a combination of approaches.
This is the primary treatment for mild cases of diabetes insipidus.
A provider may recommend diuretics or anti-inflammatories to help balance the body’s fluid levels.
Your provider may recommend a low-solute diet consisting of low amounts of sodium and low amounts of protein.
Many cases of diabetes insipidus are treated using a synthetic form of ADH called desmopressin, which is available as a pill, nasal spray or injection. When prescribing this medication, your provider will also likely recommend carefully monitored fluid intake since excess treatment with ADH can lead to water retention.
When diabetes insipidus is caused by another condition, such as a urinary tract blockage, treatment of that condition, including surgery, can help alleviate diabetes insipidus.
