A deficiency in the release of vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone) by the posterior pituitary gland. Why?

Possibly infarction: Possibly a tumor or something else. Lack of blood supply to the pituitary gland or a pituitary tumor may change the secretions of adh. However, there are other causes also, such as pregnancy that can cause this area to be infarcted (loss of blood supply). ...Read more

What hormone inhibits the secretion of adh? And what situations override the release of this inhibiting hormone?

ADH secretion: ADH is mostly controlled by plasma osmolality and plasma volume. Diabetes insipidus occurs when ADH is not secreted (head trauma, pituitary tumor) or when the kidney does not respond to it (nephrogenic di). Ethanol inhibits adh, as does atrial naturetic protein, but these are lesser influences than osmolality and volume. ...Read more

When your body is dehydrated is it your ADH hormone that saves you?

Yes and now : When you body is dehydrated, your body holds on to both sodium (salt) and water. The antiduiuretic hormone helps you hold on to water by decreasing the amount of urine that you produce. However, another hormone (aldosterone) is responsible for the preservation of sodium by limiting losses through your kidney. ...Read more

Treat the numbers?: Advice: doctors treat patients and not numbers. The ACTH and ADH numbers can't be interpreted without the clinical context- it is like a fish out of water. After all, the values may be due to a lab error. It's best to ask this question with the doctor who you visited and ordered the tests. ...Read more

Endocrinologist: These are not the typical hormones a doctor would test for irregular menstrual cycles. TSH, Proactin, LH and FSH are more typical. It sounds like you are seeing an endocrinologist already based on these tests. I would schedule follow up to over the results. ...Read more

ACTH etc.: It sure sounds like it but it is extremely unlikely that the doctor who ordered these tests did not only tell you the results but also has not referred you to an Endocrinologist! Bypass that doctor and see an Endocrinologist! ...Read more
