Body Regulation Endocrine Lymphatic and Urinary Systems Discussion
This discussion addresses Tanya’s urinary system and the symptoms she is experiencing.Over the last few months, Tanya has been getting up to go the bathroom once or twice a night. During the day, she usually goes every hour. At first, she thought it was part of aging. She also drinks a lot of water and coffee during the day. She was also experiencing extreme thirst. However, the symptoms were not going away, so she went to the doctor. The doctor first performed a urinalysis, which revealed nothing. The doctor then ordered an MRI and water deprivation test, and she was diagnosed with diabetes insipidus.
Was it incontinence or coincidence? In your post, think how Tanya might have confused the symptoms of diabetes insipidus with normal aging. What causes diabetes insipidus? Review the basics in your Visualizing Human Biology text. You are welcome to but not required to support your ideas with information from this week’s readings or the Capella library to increase your understanding.
