Yes. Diabetes insipidus can be detected through urine analysis.

Diabetes Mellitus is the more common one since Diabetes Insipidus develops from Diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes insipidus is caused by hyposecretion of antidiuretic hormone(ADH).

Diabetes insipidus is due to the kidney not being able to concentrate urine. The cardinal symptom is increased urination but patients often do not notice this. Other symptoms can include dehydration, dizziness, cramps, fatigue and confusion. On laboratory testing a high serum sodium is usually found.

Uncomplicated diabetes insipidus is controllable with adequate intake of water and most patients can lead normal lives.

Diabetes insipidus is a disorder where urine cannot be concentrated as usual, because of a lack of anti-diuretic hormone (ADH). ADH is responsible for inserting water channels into the collecting duct (in the kidney), which allows water to be reabsorbed. This disorder results in dehydration, excessive thirst and excessive amounts of urine. It is unrelated to diabetes (diabetes mellitus) except that the symptoms are similar.

There are two types of diabetes: Diabetes myelitis, and Diabetes insipidus. The latter of the two is more rare.

Although diabetes can produce a variety of signs and symptoms, there are some that are most common. These diabetes signs include increased thirst, urinary frequency and an increase in appetite. In addition, common diabetes signs may include weight loss and mood swings. Although weight loss as diabetes signs are typically more frequent in Type I Diabetes or Juvenile Diabetes, it can be a common sign of diabetes in Diabetes Mellitus or Adult Onset Diabetes. Other diabetes signs may include fatigue, poor wound healing and frequent yeast infections. If individuals experience any of these symptoms or diabetes signs, they should report them to their physician immediately for proper evaluation and treatment.

Diabetes insipidus refers to tasteless urine. I can't claim any personal knowledge of the taste of urine in a patient with diabetes insipidus.

The main signs of diabetes include excessive thirst, increased frequency of urination, and weight loss. Each of the symptoms are due to increased levels of blood glucose.

Both diabetes mellitis and diabetes insipidus cause increased uriine production, hence the name from the Greek, Diabetes. However, diabetes mellitis is caused by problems making or using insulin, and diabetes insipidus is caused by problems making or using ADH. There are two types of diabetes mellitus: A severe, chronic form of diabetes caused by insufficient production of insulin and resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. The disease, which typically appears in childhood or adolescence, is characterized by increased sugar levels in the blood and urine, excessive thirst, frequent urination, acidosis, and wasting. Also called insulin-dependent diabetes, type 1 diabetes. A mild form of diabetes that typically appears first in adulthood and is exacerbated by obesity and an inactive lifestyle. This disease often has no symptoms, is usually diagnosed by tests that indicate glucose intolerance, and is treated with changes in diet and an exercise regimen. Also called non-insulin-dependent diabetes, type 2 diabetes. Diabetes insipidus (DI) is unrelated to diabetes mellitus and has nothing to do with glucose. The symptoms include excessive thirst and constant urination because of the inability of the kidneys to regulate fluid. It its most common form, called central diabetes insipidus, it is caused by a deficiency of antidiuretic hormone (ADH). In the second most common type, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus is is caused by the kidneys being insensitive to antidiuretic hormone (ADH). It can also be caused by prescribed medications.

There are two types of diabetes. Frequent thirst and urination are signs of Type I diabetes in children. Children with Type II diabetes may exhibit extreme fatigue and blurred vision.
