It's Not Adrenal Fatigue After All...

Yeah that's right. I don't have adrenal fatigue. haha! What I have is even more bizarre and it's called Diabetes Insipidus. No, this isn't the Diabetes where you eat too many sweets. This isn't the one that the news talks about all the time or the one your doctor warns about.

Diabetes Insipidus is when your body doesn't properly retain water balance in the body. The typical signs are being thirsty constantly and urinating frequently. The exact reason why I have this my doctor and I are unsure of, but it has something to do with my pituitary gland or hypothalamus in my brain.

I am starting a new blog about Diabetes Insipidus and will likely abandon this one for good. However I am not deleting it because I think keeping information like this up on the web is good. Someone in 3 years might come across this somehow the search engines and learn more information.

I should also add that I did have my aldosterone tested and it was terribly low. However, that points towards a pituitary problem, which we know I have.
