Peeing all the time!: Diabetes insipidus (or di) is caused by either a lack of or a resistance to the hormone in your body (antidiuretic hormone) which normally allows your body to concentrate urine (so that you make less of it). Without this hormone, you produce large volumes or urine, and often patients present with excess thirst because they are on the verge of getting dehydrated from all the urine output.

Depends on cause: Di comes in a central(brain)form and kidney form.Things that cause interruption of the di hormone production, release, storage, transport or kidney sensitivity can give di. Trauma around production areas, as might occur with brain surgery & an infection like encephalitis might produce a transient di that resolves as production returns to normal levels.

If the cause disappe: The degree of recovery is largely dependent on the underlying cause of the disease. Complete resolution of symptoms may not be seen in individuals with severe disease. Chronic diabetes insipidus, although inconvenient, is not usually a dire medical condition. When properly treated, diabetes insipidus itself does not reduce life expectancy. The prognosis, therefore, depends on the underlying diseas.
