These medicines are effective treatments for many disorders including ...Read more
ADH (vasopressin): Hi. Antidiuretic hormone (ADH (vasopressin)) is a peptide hormone made in the hypothalamus and released from the posterior pituitary. It's release is regulated by circulating blood volume status and by solute concentration. ADH (vasopressin) works to reabsorb water from urinary filtrate by the kidneys. Diabetes insipidus is a rare condition deficient in ADH (vasopressin) or where the kidneys can't respond to ADH (vasopressin). SIADH (vasopressin) is too much ADH (vasopressin). ...Read more

ADH (vasopressin): Antidiuretic hormone (ADH (vasopressin)) is a small (peptide) molecule that is released by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain after being made nearby (in the hypothalamus). ADH (vasopressin) has an antidiuretic action that prevents the production of dilute urine (and so is antidiuretic). People with the syndrome of inappropriate ADH (vasopressin) secretion are fluid overload and have a low serum sodium, which can be harmful. ...Read more

Would natural diuretics (e.g. dandelion root) treat syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone?
No: The syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone is associated with low sodium. Use of diuretics whether prescription drugs or natural plant-based diuretics have unpredictable effects on serum sodium and may potentially worsen sodium levels which is potentially dangerous. Proper treatment of SIADH is typically provided by an internist, nephrologist, or endocrinologist. And sodium monitoring ...Read more
Diuretic fluids list: All fluids are diuretic if you have normal kidney function and you drink enough of them. The fluid could be water, juice, soda or milk, among others. With normal kidney function, your kidneys will excrete the excess fluid you do not need as urine and your urine output will increase. This will prevent you from getting fluid overloaded. ...Read more
