  • At age 12, there is a lot of hormonal changes going on. To support their proper role, you need the "master" hormone in good supply. That master hormone is thyroid. According to page 16 of this booklet on diabetes insipidus, "Both deficiencies of cortisone and thyroid hormone cause the body to be unable to excrete a water load properly." http://www.apeg.org.au/Portals/0/hormonesme4_diabetesinsipidus.pdf If I were you, I'd get help from Broda Barnes Foundation. Their viewpoint is invaluable.
