I'm not aware of DI affecting any other hormones. If your mother has DI
because of something else that affected her pituitary gland (tumor, head
injury, etc) then maybe there are other hormones that would need replacing.
But I do understand what you're asking... I've often wondered if my DI
(genetic in my family) might be behind other things.
You might want to make sure your mother is getting her bones checked out,
there does seem to be a link between DI and osteoporosis which needs
treatment to prevent (since simply replacing the hormone does not seem to
help). As soon as I read about this a couple years ago I let my mother know
since she's in her early 50's. Here's one study done:
Notice under Results there are thyroid-related hormones listed and it says
they were all normal before and after treatment.
