Definitions of 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 is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of
Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH). This means that Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, or a subtype of Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus,
affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners,
currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000.
They list Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus as a "rare disease".
