Diabetes Insipidus
What causes Diabetes Insipidus?

Diabetes insipidus results from a lack of vasopressin, otherwise known as anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) or an inability to utilize ADH.

Is it dangerous or nothing major?

It can create problems such as dehydration, electrolyte imbalances and severely low blood pressure, which are the more dangerous side effects.

What can be done to address it?

It will depend on the type of diabetes insipidus. I have made a custom formula in the past several times for someone with DI. He said it worked very well, but his formula was focusing on the hypothalamus for ADH production and the pituitary for ADH release. This will not work for all forms of DI.

Is the main symptom excess urine or are there other major symptoms?

The ones I mentioned above mainly.

Is it true there's a link between faulty methylation and diabetes insipidus?

There is a hypothesis that a lack of methylation can contribute to DI, but it is not proven. And again there are different types and causes of DI, so even if the hypothesis turns out to be correct this does not mean that it will apply to all forms of DI.
