    What i said was, "if I drank a liter of water before I went to bed I'd be up all night!" which was in response to SOC saying she drank a liter before she went to bed.

    It was not a statement that I was up all night peeing.

    And it still doesn't mean that does not mean I have some undiagnosed disease.

    She was trying to help and she does have a clue. So just accept the attempt of someone else to reach out and help with grace.

    Don't make me get out my lazer! Damned cats!

    Geez. :rolleyes: Lighten up. I did not diagnose you. I suggested that if you are peeing a lot you should probably be checked for DI. And DI is not a "crazy disease" any more than ME/CFS is.

    Not everyone pees shortly after drinking 750ml of water. Some do, some don't. Not everyone is the same. Bedtime fluids are recommended for some people with low blood volume, so clearly there are people for whom it works. I am one of them, but I don't claim everything that works (or doesn't) for me works (or doesn't) for everyone else.

    I'll tell you what -- I'll never respond to anything you post from here on out. That way I'll never offend your delicate sensibilities again. :rolleyes:

    If you are peeing shortly after you drink, you could have low electrolytes in which case drinking water makes it worse. You could try drinking an electrolyte solution and see if that is easier to drink.
