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.
Dx'd w/partial idiopathic central diabetes insipidus 20yrs ago by H20deprivation test. Put on DDAVP (desmopressin). No longer needed DDAVP (desmopressin) after 2 yrs. Sx better. Why?
Central DI. Hard to answer. It was called "idiopathic", meaning no clear cause. In a 13 yr old, the causes could include a tumor, certain medications, trauma/surgery, meningitis, etc. It is possible that something happened back then but then resolved. Is it possible that you now still have partial DI? Under usual conditions, don't need DDAVP, (desmopressin) but under water stress you may. See your Endocrinologist. Read more...
