What can be done to prevent the disease?
It is hard to prevent diabetes insipidus. A person can reduce his or her risk of head injury by following sports safety guidelines for children, adolescents, and adults. Early treatment of infections may also reduce the risk of DI.
What are the long-term effects of the disease?
depend on the cause of the diabetes insipidus. For instance, if the cause of
the DI is a head injury and a person recovers completely from the injury, there may be no long-term effects.
What are the risks to others?
Diabetes insipidus is not
contagious and poses no risk to others. However, those who are affected may sometimes
pass the condition on to their children. Genetic counseling may be helpful to couples with a family history of diabetes insipidus.
