What can diabetics eat for breakfast?
Did anyone have this symptom like Desmopresin only works in summers but not in entire winters or m I the only one? My cause was cortisol induced CDI or still my cortisol inference with ADH
Good summarize thanks!

Thank you sir, this was great
Recently my son who is 7 years old got diagnosed with diabetes insipedus. Dr asked to go with water deprivation test to diagnose properly. Is it safe to go with water deprivation test at this young age.
الله يوفقك دنيا واخره بجاه الحسين عليه السلام والله تعبت من هذا الموضوع وشرحك بدقائق فهمني
I love my desmopressin
Hello, thanks for amazing lecture.
Can you tell why you mentioned primary polydipsia as key diagnosis ? Does this habit or ritual leads to diabetes insipidus ??
We're testing our dog for DI right now testing with desmopressin. This really helped me understand what the vet was talking about!
CDI since 3 as well, been over 40 years with it now. Got it from a very high fever at that young age for a long period of time. I think I'll do a YouTube on how this eventually also turned to Type 2 for me because of my ignorance about diet soda.
THANK YOU!!! I WAS BORN WITH THIS 9/5/74 AND NOT DISCOVERED TIL 3/26/1996 AND NOW DISABLED FROM SEIZURE 10YRS TO THE WAY DISCOVED AND THE DRS GAVE ME MEDS AND 3MTHS IN HOSPITAL THANKFULLY GOT TO LIFE!!!! THAT GOD!!! PEACE BE WITH YOU!!!
This really was helpful, man. Thank you. I have Cranial DI. Five years ago in November of 2017, I started drinking lots of water after I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. Now I know for a fact that, yes, the tumor did effect my Hypothalamus in my brain and that’s what I causing Cranial DI. I have had a Fluid Deprivation Test recently and I’ve been given a prescription for Desmopressin. Tomorrow I start taking it. Wish me good health and good luck!
Thank you so much, That was so helpfu! <3
