Double glazed units are traditionally manufactured with an aluminium frame containing silica beads sandwiched between two panes of glass and sealed with a polymer compound around the edges. Once the unit is sealed the silica beads remove all the moisture from within the unit providing a moisture free environment.
Over time this external seal can deteriorate and let moist air seep into the double glazing unit itself. Any moist air entering will be absorbed until the silica beads become saturated and cannot retain any more water, at which point, the moisture will begin to appear as condensation.
Because of the way double glazed units are made, it is not feasable to repair the unit.
The easiest and most cost effective way of dealing with this problem is to replace the double glazed unit.
