Diabetes Insipidus (DI) results from a relative or absolute deficiency in either the production or action of the posterior pituitary hormone Vasopressin (AVP), the principle endocrine regulator of renal water excretion. The challenges in DI encompass its diagnosis, its treatment and in managing the co-morbidities and complications of the condition. This presentation will cover all these elements, highlighting cases that illustrate some of the key principles in the clinical approach to this important endocrine problem.
