  • Diabetes Insipidus is a rare form of diabetes resulting from a deficiency of vasopressin (the pituitary hormone that regulates the kidneys); characterized by the chronic excretion of large amounts of pale dilute urine which results in dehydration and extreme thirst. - found online

    Some of the literature says that the desire for water (cold) could be an indication.

    If you think you may have it.. it is a 1 in 25,000 chance! Get it checked out by a doctor... seek a 2nd opionion also.

    Look it up on WebMd.. they have stuff on there :)
