What is Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus?

What is Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus?

  • Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus: A rare inherited condition where the kidneys can't concentrate the urine sufficiently which results in excessive urination and thirst. The condition occurs because the kidneys are unable to respond to the antidiuretic hormone.
  • Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus: A polyuric disorder characterized by normal rates of renal filtration and solute excretion, but a persistent hypotonic urine. This condition is due to the failure of renal tubules to respond to antidiuretic hormones, such as vasopressin, to reduce urine volume. Tubular insensitivity to vasopressin can result from genetic defects, diseases, drug effects, or may occur with pregnancy.

  • Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus: diabetes insipidus caused by a failure of the kidney to respond to normal levels of vasopressin.
