Abstract

Diabetes insipidus is a rare condition, whereas polyuria may be a symptom of numerous other ailments. Polyuria intensifies thirst (polydipsia), which appears to be a natural reaction to an excessive loss of water in the organism. Before diagnosing rare conditions, hypoglycaemia and kidney failure must be excluded. Borderline cases must consult with an endocrinology specialist.
