See your doc: I am not sure how you know this is what you have, but if so you need to see your doc for treatments..Two types: one is deficiency of arginine vasopressin (a diuretic hormone--avp) and other is nephrogenic (kidneys not sensitive to avp). You will/should find out why having diabetes insipidus. But either way, you still will need treatment. Consult your doc... Good luck.
