Customer Question

Hi need to speak with someone. I have been struggling with what could be diabetes insipidus, however it has not been diagnosed yet. I have many many times gotten weird symptoms when I have too much salt and not enough water. Most of the time my symptoms go away but this last time, 4 days ago, they have not. I am depressed, lacking cognition I had before, have no libido, and emotionally blunted. I am so nervous I will not get these back.

I have not yet no...I spent 2 years going to Endocrine appointments...they said something was somewhat off, but said it wasnt DI. However, I get these symptoms whenever I dont drink enough water. I get listless, irritable, and sometimes, obtunded. Its been happening for years now.

Thanks for info ...

It would be ideal for you to have Hormonal assays , please get Pituatry hormones levels to determine what is going wrong .

Your symptoms are suggestive of Hormonal abnormalities , so exactly you should go for test before making any diagnosis .

Pituitary hormone controls all functions of body by releasing different hormones from body , so get test as early as possible .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thank you. If it was hypernatremia, could I have gotten brain damage from it? I noticed symptoms after 3 hours and drank enough water and they started to go away but some symptoms are still here.
Expert:  dr abid replied 1 year ago.

If you have high sodium levels than headache and non specific symptoms can occur , brain damage occur because of prolong exposure to Hypernatremia .

Simple blood test like serum electrolytes can tell about sodium levels , so you can check your serum sodium .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
