Diabetes insipidus - nephrogenic - Prevention
Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus; Acquired nephrogenic diabetes insipidus; Congenital diabetes insipidus
There is no known way to prevent congenital nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
Treating the disorders that can lead to the acquired form of the condition may prevent it from developing in some cases. Medications should only be used under the supervision of the health care provider.
