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. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: ADH (vasopressin) overdose?

What is the definition or description of: ADH (vasopressin) overdose?

Seek Med help if OD: Dear htreference, An OD of ADH can result in excess water retention that can cause electrolyte abnormalities, especially low sodium (hyponatremia) that can be dangerous. Symptoms of too much ADH can include, but not limited to headache, drowsiness, weakness, pale skin, nausea, and stomach pain. A good resource to consider for questions-https://www. Poisonhelp. Hrsa.

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%. ...Read more

Please explain where is ADH (vasopressin) and oxytocin produced?

Pituitary: Hi. ADH (vasopressin) & oxytocin are made in neurons in the hypothalamus and travel down the axons in the pituitary stalk to the posterior pituitary where they are stored until they're released. They're referred to as "posterior pituitary hormones", but they're made in the hypothalamus and only stored and released from the posterior pituitary. ...Read more

How does ADH (vasopressin) stimulate water reabsorption in the kidney?

How does ADH (vasopressin) stimulate water reabsorption in the kidney?

Distal channels: Anti diuretic hormone promotes water absorption in the distal kidney by opening channels there. It requires an adequate hyper tonicityof the medulla which can be impaired by loop diuretic use. ...Read more

Would secretion of ADH (vasopressin) be a normal response to hypotension?

Would secretion of ADH (vasopressin) be a normal response to hypotension?

What is the function of ADH (vasopressin) in regulating osmolarity in the blood?

What is the function of ADH (vasopressin) in regulating osmolarity in the blood?

Kidney and water: Hi. ADH (vasopressin) prevents the kidney from putting water out in the urine (a graded dose-response). If solutes in the blood are becoming too high a concentration, ADH (vasopressin) is secreted and makes the kidney put water from the kidney filtrate back into the blood, which dilutes out the solutes and brings down the osmolarity. Falling osmolarity suppresses ADH (vasopressin) secretion. The waltz goes on. ...Read more

Why is there a hypersecretion of ADH (vasopressin) with children with meningitis?

Why is there a hypersecretion of ADH (vasopressin) with children with meningitis?

Not a clear answer: From amini and schmidt, who looked at ADH (vasopressin) secretion after spine surgery, "the mechanism by which CNS disorders
cause SIADH (vasopressin) is not well understood. Most authors hypothesize that injury to the CNS disrupts or alters the osmoregulation of ADH (vasopressin) release by the neurohypophysis, stimulating inappropriate release of adh (vasopressin).". ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Besides poor ADH (vasopressin) production, what makes urination more frequent at night?

Nocturia: Hi. How many times do you get up to pee on an average night? Diabetes insipidus (poor ADH (vasopressin) production or function) is a very uncommon cause of nocturia. The most common is drinking a lot in the evening. Diabetes mellitus is also a common cause of nocturia. Congestive heart failure or any cause of lower extremity edema where the kidneys still work will cause nocturia. ...Read more

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

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

In what circumstances will aldosterone be secreted over ADH (vasopressin) and vice versa. Are they both secreted in response to low BP? What about low plasma osm?

Good questions!: Aldosterone release is regulated by renin. I believe hypotension (or rather long-standing hypoperfusion) may be a trigger, especially in secondary aldosteronism (due to CHF, for example) ADH (vasopressin), (vasopressin) on the other hand, is triggered by hyperosmolarity, rather than hypotension. Low osmolarity will, of course, suppress ADH (vasopressin). ...Read more

What's the lab name of the test that would tell me if I had a problem with the ADH (vasopressin)? I'm getting tested for other things & want to make sure it's there

Several tests needed: You need several tests (blood and urine) to confirm that a patient has a problem with antidiuretic hormone, including urine osmolarity, serum osmolarity, urine sodium, serum sodium, urine specific gravity. A CT of the head may also be needed. ...Read more

Other than poor ADH (vasopressin) production, what causes frequent urination at night?

Many causes: Poor ADH (vasopressin) production is an extremely rare cause for frequent urination at night. One of the most common causes is fluid retention during the day. If you have varicose veins or other causes for swelling of the legs, once you lie down at night, the fluid comes out of the legs and into your bladder, making you urinate more. If you drink a lot in the evening, you will urinate more at night. ...Read more

Morning hp 120/80 but goes up to 185/85 just after taking bystolic (nebivolol) or isosorbide and stays for an hour. On 5 mg pred/arb in pm/no issues. Adh issue?

Morning hp 120/80 but goes up to 185/85 just after taking bystolic (nebivolol) or isosorbide and stays for an hour. On 5 mg pred/arb in pm/no issues. Adh issue?

No, isosorbide: B"sd
Amazing occurence. Bystolic (nebivolol) is a balanced blocker with both beta and some alpha blocking - not likely the cause. Isosorbide is a vasodialator and in fact has been reported as a cause of paradoxical hypertension.
See: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/9752888
Would consult with your cardiologist, as to relevance of this possibility in your case. ...Read more

What is the function of anti-diuretic hormone (ADH)?

Can I be bipolar & ADH (vasopressin) @ the same time?

Can I be bipolar & ADH (vasopressin) @ the same time?

It's possible: It's possible to have both a bipolar disorder and adhd. To make such a determination a professional would need to carefully evaluate your history and symptoms. It is somewhat challenging for a professional to make this determination due to the fact that there are overlapping symptoms in the two disorders. You are you, and you can get an individualized treatment plan regardless of diagnoses. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
