(Nephrogenic) Diabetes Insipidus (DI)

by Carlo Raj, MD

Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a disorder that results from either a decrease in the release of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or a decreased response to ADH, causing electrolyte imbalances. These two categories of DI are classified as central and nephrogenic, respectively, and each has congenital and acquired causes. The most common findings in patients with DI are polydipsia, polyuria, and nocturia.

It is great how Dr. Raj integrates pathophysiology with clinical correlations, including pharmacology and its mechanisms.

Very helpful !

As always I enjoy and learn so much from you Dr. Raj

Top quality teaching, top quality humour! Congratulations
By Ricardo V. on 23. October 2017 for Diabetes Insipidus (DI): Management

Congratulations once more, Dr. Raj. Learning is much funnier when lecturers have a good sense of humour. Explaining the management of Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus is not an easy task, but putting humour the middle of that is even harder. You succeeded very well in both tasks. I liked it specially when you said "go to the clinic, kickbutt and be hoisted by your collagues" after discussing the wise intersection of topics between pathology (bipolar disease, and its chronic lithium treatment) and pharmacology (amiloride). Ingenious!
