Diabetes Insipidus: Overview

Diabetes insipidus is a disorder of the pituitary gland and kidneys. Its hallmark symptom is extreme volume of clear (insipid) urine. Despite its name beginning with diabetes, it actually has nothing to do with the more common disease of Diabetes Mellitus (commonly just called diabetes). It is not a type of diabetes, and is unlikely to be confused with or misdiagnosed as common diabetes.
