My doctor prescribed DDAVP for my diabetes insipidus. What is the difference in taking that and taking hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride? I was also just diagnosed with eosinophilic granuloma. Do you have any information on that?

DDAVP is used to treat the pituitary type of DI. Hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride are used to treat the nephrogenic type of DI. If your doctor prescribed DDAVP and it is working, you must have the pituitary type of DI. It is sometimes caused by eosinophilic granuloma.
