    Dear AhmedAlhussien,

    I'm not sure why you feel you need to "finish" your Desmopressin, sir, but I'm afraid you need to take it for the rest of your life.  The reason for this is that diabetes insipidus (DI) causes you to urinate very frequently, causing you to be abnormally thirsty, due to your body not being able to 'hold on to the excessive urine that your kidneys produce.

    Diabetes insipidus is caused by problems with a hormone called vasopressin (AVP), also called antidiuretic hormone (ADH).

    AVP plays a key role in regulating the amount of fluid in the body.  It's produced by specialist nerve cells in a part of the brain known as the hypothalamus.  AVP passes from the hypothalamus to the pituitary gland where it's stored until needed.

    Unfortunately, as it stands, there is no cure for Diabetes Insipidus.

      Dear AhmedAlhussien,

      Please forgive me, sir, for taking so long to respond to your message.  Unfortunately, I've been bedbound for almost the last week, and haven't been able to get to my computer.

      Believe me, sir, I do KNOW how you feel about 'comparing' yourself now to what you were like before your illness developed.  I'm always doing the same thing.

      I don't know if your doctor has informed you, sir, but there are different types of diabetes insipidus, which can have different 'root' causes as to why they developed.  If s/he hasn't informed you, it MAY pay you to ask.

      I'm not sure whether the following link will be allowed by the moderators here, as some of them do seem a little 'power crazy', but the following website offers you some information on diabetes insipidus, the symptoms, the causes, complications, treatments, etc.  You might like to take a look and see if you learn something new.


      I truly wish you well, sir.
