Hi,

 

These symptoms with normal ADH first mean that pt donot have Diabetes insipidus which is due to ADH deficiency.

 

The blood sugar of this patient should be checked both random and fasting because these symptoms are also classical symptoms of diabetes mellitus.

 

Third remote chance is of primary polydypsia which become less likely because of presence of polyphagia.

 

I hope this has answered your question
