Some studies have found other abnormalities in other parts of the kidney tissue in addition to the nephrons which may be specific to NDI, but the findings have not been conclusive. Hironak, et al., examined the kidney tissue of a 16-year-old male NDI patient and found it normal except for a minor abnormality in the section of the tubule closest to the glomerulus.
