Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 30 male. I am suffering from central diabetes insipidus for the last three years. My all body, skin, and mucous membranes like penis glans, nose, nostrils and eyes have extreme dryness and frequent nightfall 4 to 5 times a week. Please advise medicine. Currently, I am taking Desmopressin.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Central diabetes insipidus is a very rare case of diabetes. In this condition blood sugar doses are normal but due to excessive urination, the body suffers from electrolyte imbalances which lead to excessive thirst, dryness weaknesses, and lethargy.

The Probable causes

It is due to lack or very less secretion of ADH hormones.

Investigations to be done

ADH, vasopressin.

Treatment plan

The treatment plan would be to suppress extra urination and need to reduce dryness of skin. 1. Gokshuradi Guggulu (Gokshura, Shuddha Guggulu, Pippali) two tablets twice a day after meals. 2. Prawal Panchamrita (Pearl Bhasma, Conch shell Bhasma, Pearl oyster bhasma) one tablet twice a day after meals. 3. Lakshadi Guggulu (Taila, Aranala, Laksha) one tablet twice a day after meals. 4. Lodhrasava (Guda, Lodhara, Amalakai) two tablespoon twice a day with an equal amount of water after meals. 5. Guggulu tikta grita (Nimba, Patola, Vyaghrione) twice a day before food.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
