Electrolyte problem: Diabetes insipidus occurs due to either abnormality in hormone secretion from the brain or kidney not responding to this hormone. High blood sodium levels is one of the common and serious electrolyte problem. Being two year old, the child may not be able to express the thirst or get access to water when the sodium level is high. It is crucial for the parents to carefully monitor them.
