Very possible: The fact that both conditions are rare makes your question a very decent one. Idiopathic diabetes insipidus may well be associated with autoantibodies i.e. Autoimmunity.

Myopic w/ astigmatism & ms, i've had increasing double vision despite being treated w/ tysabri (natalizumab). For correction, do I need ophthalmologist or neuro-op?
Depends : If your double vision goes away when you close either eye, it's a muscle problem and a neuro-oph would be best (though an ophthalmologist could always see you too). If the double vision seems to be only in one eye, then it is a refractive problem and you should see an ophthalmologist. Could be anything from needing glasses to having a cataract. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm in stage 3 Kidney Disease w/ large renal angiomyolipomas bilaterally. My doc has no fluid restrictions. I drink 3-4 liters H2O daily. Too much?
Sounds fine: Water isn't a burden on your kidneys. Only late in the course of kidney failure will there be a need to restrict, for the sake of the rest of your body. Hopefully that won't happen. Do look for a cause of your renal insufficiency other than your TS / lipomas. If it's just loss of renal mass from compression, ACE inhibitors might slow progression. Keep learning & glad you asked. ...Read more
