Endocrinologist 's  Response
Hi: I am an endocrinologist. The diabetes insipidus is due to deficiency of hormone called vasopressin or ADH. The treatment is ADH that is given as desmopression spray. Whether to live without the medicine depends on the reason of the central DI and your sodium and potassium value. Depression may not be directly related to DI.
