How is NDI treated?

Treatment consists of adequate free water intake, thiazide diuretics, NSAIDs, and a low-salt, low-protein diet. (See also Central Diabetes Insipidus.) NDI is characterized by inability to concentrate urine in response to vasopressin. Central diabetes insipidus is characterized by lack of vasopressin.

What causes NDI?
