You have not mentioned your blood sugar. So we can not come into any conclusion about hyperglycemia.
You are taking 80 mg of Lasix inspite of which your urine output is not adequate.
Diabetes Insipidus will cause excess amount of urine output to an extend to severely dehydrate you.
By history alone this diagnosis is very unlikely.
