excretion of urine of low specific gravity.

hy·pos·the·nu·ri·a

(hī'pos-thĕ-nyū'rē-ă),
Excretion of urine of low specific gravity, due to inability of the tubules of the kidneys to produce a concentrated urine; also occurs following excessive water ingestion in diabetes insipidus.

hyposthenuria (hī´pōsthen-yoo´rēə),

n a condition in which the urine has an abnormally low specific gravity. Hyposthenuria may occur in cases in which renal damage impairs concentrating power or when the kidneys are normal but lack hormonal stimulus for concentrations, as in diabetes insipidus.
