Do you know of any link between diabetes insipidus and infertility? I have a friend who has been trying to get pregnant for many years and is now wondering if there isn't some link with the diabetes. I know that pregnancy involves numerous hormones, and since the diabetes insipidus involves the thyroid, I wasn't sure if maybe infertility has been a problem with anyone that you know of.

DI does not cause infertility or thyroid problems. However, all three disorders can have the same underlying cause, especially if the DI is of the pituitary or dipsogenic type. They are much less likely to have the same cause if the DI is of the nephrogenic type.
