The severity of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus can be reduced by decreasing the intake of salt and, if possible, protein. However, this will not completely correct the problem. Fluid restriction may reduce urine output in some patients but it should never be tried as treatment because it will also result in hypernatremic dehydration and marked increase in thirst. Patients with severe hypernatremic dehydration can suffer small strokes that permanently damage the brain.
