Q: DI
Urine osmolarity post desmopresin more than 50% increases in central DI,
While less than 50% increases in nephrogenc DI.
Why it increases in nephrogenc DI with Desmopresin it shouldnt raise because kidney is not responding to ADH so how it wil increases the osmolarity aftr desmopresin injection?

I think you might be referring to hypercalcemia and hypokalemia causing nephrogenic DI.
