Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
I developed diabetes insipidus from Lithium. As I continued to take the drug,I eventually developed chronic kidney disease. Because my nephrologist failed to understand diabetes insipidus, he put me on a blood pressure lowering medication "because it helps most kidney patients", even though my blood pressure was always low. I became dehydrated and low blood flow to kidneys caused acute tubular necrosis. Now on dialysis (6 years). I still have diabetes insipidus so pee a lot. I can't be the only one??
