A study of 180 adults with childhood-onset craniopharyngioma showed those with diabetes insipidus had greater anterior pituitary hormone deficits and higher BMI and fat mass than those without the condition. Researchers noted comparable fasting glucose, A1C, lipids and quality of life in patients with or without diabetes insipidus regardless of their primary treatment type. The results appear in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
