Urine Is Not A Word, It’s A Responsibility. Diabetes Insipidus.

Diabetes Insipidus
Diabetes insipidus occurs when your body can’t regulate how it handles fluids. Normally, your kidneys remove excess body fluids from your bloodstream. This fluid waste is temporarily stored in your bladder as urine, before you urinate. When your fluid regulation system is working properly, your kidneys make less urine when your body water is decreased, such as through perspiration, to conserve fluid
Diabetes Insipidus, a far more rare disease than diabetes mellitus, has very little or nothing to do with sugar, though it is called diabetes. Only three in a hundred thousand people, in the general population, suffer from this disease. 
The patient suffers from excessive thirst and the urine excreted is extremely diluted.
No matter how much or how often you reduce the quantity of water you drink, the urine does not change its concentration.
Risk Factors...
Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus that’s present at or shortly after birth usually has a genetic cause that permanently alters the kidneys’ ability to concentrate the urine. Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus usually affects males, though women can pass the gene on to their children.
Latin adopted the word “DIABETES” from Ancient Greek, “diabainein”, where it meant “that which passes through”; in other words, “a siphon”. ´Dia´ means “through” and “bainein” means “to go”.
In the first century of the Christian Era, Aretus, a Greek Physician, living in Cappadocia, used the word diabetes to describe excessive discharge of urine. Thus, we have the name “diabetes” for the disease. The word is first found in English in a medical text from about 1425.
Insipidus means “having no taste”, in Latin (in (non)+ sapidus (tasty)). Diabetes Insipidus is considered to lack in flavor and zestless as there is no excretion of glucose into urine.
