Could my boy have diabetes insipidus
My son has had many strange, seemingly unrelated symptoms for years and other than cronic anemia has yet to be diagnosed with anything definate. 2 major symptoms are
1. extreme bed wetting. he wets the bed 2-3xs every night. He wears a 'goodnight' diaper that needs to be changed through the night.
2.He gets soo thirty that he almost panics in desperation waiting for his water. We have restricted water in the evenings and have found him sneaking water from the bathroom. Even nights when we know he hasn't snuck any water he is still soaked through the night.
A few other symptoms are
-flaky fingernails that don't grow
-needs lot of extra sleep(probly from anemia) on 3 adult iron pills a day
-vision problems, already in glasses
-hip dysplasia, meyers dysplasia (he's growing out of that now)
-exema on scalp and behind ears
-trouble getting his thougts out. repeats words, sort of like stuttering
could these symptoms be diabetes insipidus??????
