Suggest the symptoms you would expect in a person with lack of ADH.
Common symptoms include excessive urination, which is called polyuria, followed by extreme thirst, which is called polydipsia. People with central diabetes insipidus are often extremely tired because their sleep is frequently interrupted by the need to urinate.
2 main symptoms of diabetes insipidus are often needing to pee a large amount of urine and feeling extremely thirsty.
If you have diabetes insipidus, you may pee pale, watery urine every 15 to 20 minutes.
The amount of urine can range from 3 litres in mild cases to up to 20 litres per day in severe cases.
It's also likely that you'll feel thirsty all the time and have a "dry" feeling that's always present, no matter how much water you drink.
If you need to pee regularly and always feel thirsty, your sleeping patterns and daily activities may be disrupted.
This can cause tiredness, irritability and difficulty concentrating, which can affect your daily life further.
You may also feel generally unwell and "run down" much of the time for no apparent reason.
