What is it?


Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (also known as renal diabetes insipidus) is a form of diabetes insipidus primarily due to pathology of the kidney. This is in contrast to central/neurogenic diabetes insipidus, which is caused by insufficient levels of antidiuretic hormone (ADH, that is, arginine vasopressin or AVP).


Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus is caused by an improper response of the kidney to ADH, leading to a decrease in the ability of the kidney to concentrate the urine by removing free water.

Diabetes insibidus renalis


Marc Wübbenhorst from the Western German city of Bielefeld drinks at least 10 times more water than the recommended daily intake of two litres a day for most people.


The 36-year-old German has suffered from diabetes insipidus since birth. It’s a rare disease – only 60 people in Germany have been diagnosed with it. The condition – which, despite its name, is unrelated to diabetes – is an inability of the sufferer’s body to handle fluids..


These days, Wübbenhorst says he can live with his condition and manages to cope with it with the help of generous doses of humour. "Make the best of it!"
