There are multiple proposed mechanisms of hypercalcemia and nephrogenic DI. Close to 70% of patients with hypercalcemia experience polyuria and dehydration. It is thought that a combination of inhibition of microtubules by calcium preventing formation of the aquaporins, as well as calcium deposition in the medulla with secondary impaired generation of the osmotic gradient, results in nephrogenic DI.
