Please advice medicine. currently, I am taking Desmopressin.

Central diabetes insipidus is a very rare case of diabetes. In this condition blood sugar doses are normal but due to excessive urination, the body suffers from electrolyte imbalances which lead to excessive thirst, dryness weaknesses, and lethargy.

The Probable causes:

It is due to lack or very less secretion of ADH hormones.

Investigations to be done:

ADH, vasopressin.

Treatment plan:

The treatment plan would be to suppress extra urination and need to reduce dryness of skin.
1. Gokshuradi Guggulu two tablets twice a day after meals.
2. Prawal Panchamrita one tablet twice a day after meals.
3. Lakshadi Guggulu one tablet twice a day after meals.
4. Lodhrasava 10 ml twice a day with an equal amount of water after meals.
5. Guggulu tikta grita one spoon twice a day before food.
