Urine Osmolality Diabetes Insipidus
Vasopressin.: Diabetes insipidus is due to lack of urine concentrating ability. This is from insufficient ADH or antidiuretic hormone due to various causes. This is called central diabetes insipidus. This has high urine volume, low urine osmolality, and migh intake of fluids. Argenine vasopressin or avp given to these patients causes a >9% rise in urine osmolality. In normal patients, it is <9%. ...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

It is NOT regulated: Urine is composed of everything you DON'T need to stay healthy. It's determined by everything else, and is itself not regulated at all. Drink more water and eat less salt -- your urine will be dilute. Drink less water, sweat out your body water stores on a hot day, eat a lot of salt -- your urine will be concentrated. ...Read more

What can cause severe thirst (7-10 liters per day) other than diabetes insipidus without diabetes mellitus (normal blood sugar)?
Polydipsia ? etiolog: Psycogenic polydpsia can cause this but other physiologic causes must be ruled out by basic chemistries. You should see your PCP for blood work. ...Read more
When tumors secrete high levels of vasopressin, what happens to plasma osmolarity, urine osmolarity and urine volume ?
Very different: Diabetes mellitus is the typical "diabetes" that we are familiar with. It's caused by an Insulin problem (too little or just not working well (resistance)) causing elevation in blood sugar. Diabetes insipidus is a water problem characterized by lots of urination and high sodium level. It's caused by an ADH (vasopressin) (antidiuretic hormone) problem (too little or just not working well). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is diabetes insipidus life threathening?Doc investigating if its anxiety or insipidus.All blood n urine test normal.Since 3 days high thirst,urination
Life-threatening: due to effects on electrolytes (sodium). If it isn't low, or inappropriate amounts in urine (sodium pee'd out, when it should be held in) then it isn't diabetes insipidus. Vitamin B12 deficiency is from zero in the diet (strict vegan diet), or from malabsorption. If meat in diet, then there is zero reason to take b12 by pill--doesn't get in, then pill won't help. ...Read more

Need time to heal: Acute kidney failure involves damage to the cells lining the kidney tubules (nephrons) which take days to regrow and repair. These cells then reestablish the high osmotic gradient in the kidney pyramids that enable concentration of urine. Until the cells regrow and the osmotic gradient is reformed, urine osmolality will be low. ...Read more
Extreme thirst,no weight loss,increased urination,RFT&ADH hormone normal,no diabetes,GTT fine,no UTI,urine analysis fine.Only test pending is osmality?
Slight foamy urine.spot urine test-protein 5mg/dl,creatinine 37mg/dl,albumin 2 mg/litre.Is it normal or proteinuria ?
Proteinuria: We generally calculate the urine protein to creatinine ratio and as long as the ratio is below 300 mg/g it is considered not significant (yours is only 135mg/g) so your proteinuria is not significant. But the Albumin level you mentioned, is it serum (blood) Albumin level? If yes, it is very low and unlikely! Please verify your Albumin level and it's source (blood or urine) . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
