What is adhs (vasopressin)? I seen it on an answer pertaining to weight loss problems

Snake oil: It is one of many unregulated, un tested, and non-sensical agents sold for the purpose of weight loss. Its claim is adrenal regulation, but there are no ingredients in it to do that; if there were, it would be only used for specific syndromes managed under the care of an endocrinologist. Ask your doctor about a diet and exercise program.

What exactly is atypical ductal hyperplasia (adh)?

What exactly is atypical ductal hyperplasia (adh)?

Breast cancer marker: ADH (vasopressin) is an abnormal proliferation of breast duct cells that is benign but is associated with present or future breast cancer. ADH (vasopressin) is suspected on mammograms with microcalcifications and is diagnosed on needle biopsy and usually requires surgical excision. About 30% of excisions for ADH (vasopressin) will show cancer. For the other 70% of women the risk of developing breast cancer over the next 8 years is 3.7%.

What does an increased ADH (vasopressin) cause?

What does an increased ADH (vasopressin) cause?

Low sodium: ADH (vasopressin) is anti-diuretic hormone which causes your body to retain free water. When you have too much of it, your body retains too much free water and "dilutes" out the sodium content in your blood which will cause the level to drop. Low sodium in the blood can be very detrimental to your health.

Is it safe to take methotrexate (for ra) with tamoxifen (chemoprevention for adh)?

Is it safe to take methotrexate (for ra) with tamoxifen (chemoprevention for adh)?

Yes, but: Both are powerful, potentially dangerous drugs that should be monitored by physicians expert in their use. The major problem in mixing them is in white cell production and liver inflammation. Please follow your doctor's instructions carefully, and report any unusual symptoms to her/him. The benefit to risk ratio is a constant assessment doctors make when prescribing any medication (s).

I complete tamoxifen therapy (chemoprevention for adh) on 1 jan. Should I wait til then to start methotrexate (recently diagnosed with ra)?

I complete tamoxifen therapy (chemoprevention for adh) on 1 jan. Should I wait til then to start methotrexate (recently diagnosed with ra)?

Don't have to wait: There is no significant interaction between tamoxifen and methotrexate, so you can start any time. Methotrexate is a disease-modifying agent and takes couple of months to work, thus starting earlier is better, for most cases. It is only a month and a half before completing tamoxifen, so it is not that long of a wait if you so choose. I would advise informing your doc of your concern. Good luck.

What is the relationship between ADH (vasopressin) and aqp2 in urinary system?

What is the relationship between ADH (vasopressin) and aqp2 in urinary system?

Signal-response.: Adh, or vasopressin, is a hormone released by the posterior pituitary gland when the body wishes to conserve water. Aquaporin 2 (aqp2) channels in the kidney are activated by adh, which reabsorb water back into the bloodstream, concentrating and decreasing the volume of urine. Mutations in aqp2 can lead to diabetes insipidus, where large volumes of urine are released.

How does ADH (vasopressin) cause hyponatremia?

ADH (vasopressin): Antidiuretic hormone prevents diuresis which causes fluid retention which causes dilution of electrolytes, including sodium, hence low level.
