From Australia:

My three year old cousin has salt diabetes, but his younger brother is okay. Can you tell me more about it?


Don't know what salt diabetes is. Is this Diabetes Insipidus (DI) where the hormone vasopressin is either deficient or not functioning properly in the kidneys?


[Editor's comment: DI is a different disorder than diabetes mellitus. For previous questions about DI at Children with Diabetes, see Diabetes Insipidus. Also, organizations dealing with DI are listed at Services. WWQ]
