24 Part I / Pituitary Once the diagnosis of DI is established, it is necessary to determine the type (14). The history and physical or clinical setting may be helpful, but it can also be ambiguous or even misleading. Therefore, it is usually necessary or prudent to rely on laboratory criteria. Measurements of plasma osmolality and/or sodium under basal conditions of ad libitum fluid intake are usually of no value because they vary widely and overlap extensively in the three major types of DI; that is because the excessive water loss in patients with pituitary or nephrogenic DI is usually offset by thirst and a commensurate increase in fluid intake, whereas the excessive intake in primary polydipsia is offset by suppression of AVP and a commensurate increase in water excretion.

It has three exons and directs the production of a preprohormone that contains 166 amino acids and comprises a signal peptide, AVP, an AVP binding protein known as neurophysin (NP) II and a glycosylated peptide known as copeptin (CP). Like other preprohormones, the AVP precursor is formed by cleavage of signal peptide in the endoplasmatic reticulum, transported through the Golgi to neurosecretory vesicles, where it is further processed to AVP, NPII, and CP and stored until released into the systemic circulation.
