A normal person couldn’t survive 3-5 days without water, but for some this severe dehydration happens in hours. What if your body could not use the water you drank and every drop you took in just came right out? What if your urine has never darkened to tell you that your body is becoming dehydrated?

This condition is called Diabetes Insipidus.

“In 3 out of the 4 types of diabetes insipidus, the regulation system malfunctions and causes the kidneys to think that there is too much water in the body. Because of this, they will continually pull out fluids from the blood stream and turn it into urine.”


“ Depending on how many fluids are consumed over the course of the day, a person with diabetes insipidus may expel over 20 liters of urine over the course of 24 hours.

That’s enough to fill 5 one gallon milk jugs with urine.”
