We study 14,693 people who have side effects while taking Lithium carbonate from FDA and social media. Among them, 101 have Diabetes insipidus. Find out below who they are, when they have Diabetes insipidus and more.

On Apr, 13, 2014: 14,693 people reported to have side effects when taking Lithium carbonate. Among them, 101 people (0.69%) have Diabetes Insipidus. They amount to 2.19% of all the 4,619 people who have Diabetes Insipidus on eHealthMe.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year 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??
