Diabetes Insipidus And Urine Specific Gravity
Is it possible to have a normal urinalysis with central diabetes and normal urine specific gravity? If so, how?
Yes: When the question is central diabetes insipidus (you DO mean diabetes insipidus, right?), urine SG should be masured by hygrometer or something more precise than the urinalysis strip. "Normal" SG is 1.003 to 1.030 depending on the variables that life provides. If you can concentrate your urine above 1.020, I'm doubting it's diabetes insipidus. Best wishes. ...Read more
Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more
Can partial central diabetes insipidus go away or improve? After 2yrs needing ddavp (desmopressin) to control, eventually urine started to concentrate without it.
I have seen: one patient in which this happened, but it is very uncommon if the diagnosis is made correctly. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more
Does urine specific gravity increase or decrease in post-renal azotemia ? And what about pre renal ?
Depends : In pre renal azotemia if due dehydration or volume depletion, specific gravity should be high but depends on baseline kidney functions like any underlying kidney disease. I am not sure what you meant by post renal azotemia- in general someone passing lots of urine and is clear, specific gravity should be low as it is likely to be dilute urine; but are some exceptions. ...Read more
Not enough to test: Qns translates to quantity not sufficient. It means there was not enough volume of the sample for the test to be run buy the method the lab uses to confirm the result. ...Read more
Is urine specific gravity of 1.002-1.006 too low or indicative of anything? Creatinine .7, BUN 10, urinalysis normal/negative.
Why post hypophysectomy via transphenoifal approach nurse should check urine specific gravity every 4 hrs?
Diabetes insipidus: After a transphenoidal surgery, you can have a disruption of the production of a pituitary hormone called vasopressin, which normally controls the amount of water that is filtered through the kidneys into your urine. This can result in losing too much water in your urine, a condition called "diabetes insipidus", resulting in diluted urine which can be measured by checking the specific gravity. ...Read more
Urine specific gravity is 1.005 to 1.010 pH is 5 hemolyzed blood-moderate to large protein trace to 30
right flank pain for about a week.
Have had m?
Misdx of diabetes insipidus, diagnosis now is psychogenic polydipsia. Am on water restriction, how long until my urine frequency slows down. Currently every 2hr or so.
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. ...Read more
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
