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
I have excess antidiuretic hormone that is causing chronic hyponetremia, despite thorough testing the cause is unknown. R there any natural treatments?
Why?: You know exactly how much medication you are taking each time you take a pill or capsule. You know there is medication in that pill or capsule. It is regulated, checked for contaminates and studied with double blind placebo controlled studies. Is the medication not working for you? I really want to know why "natural things" are better. Dirt is natural, Mercury is natural. Meds are not bad! ...Read more

2 things: Hi. ADH (vasopressin) prevents free water loss in the urine (i.e., concentrates the urine) and increases vasoconstriction and availability of Von Willebrand Factor, which augments blood clotting. In my experience (and I'm not a hematologist), the big therapeutic use of the ADH (vasopressin) analog, DDAVP, is in diabetes insipidus. It makes their lives comfortable and livable. ...Read more
Anti-enuretic: Anti-diuretic hormone, or vasopressin, is produced in much greater levels at night and when we are lying down flat, thus making the urine produced at night more concentrated & allowing most of us to sleep uninterrupted during the night. It is marketed as a medicine under the name ddavp (desmopressin). When used properly, it is a very effective treatment for bedwetting. ...Read more
SIADH: Vasopressin (aka anti diuretic hormone) is a hormone that controls the free water content of the body through the regulation of water channels in the kidney. It is normally released in response to low blood pressure and highly concentrated blood. When ADH is released, urine concentrates and blood dilutes. In siadh, vasopressin is released in a atypical way due to pathological factors. ...Read more
Reduces the volume.: Maintaining fluid balance is an important function of the body. When the body senses dehydration, the brain releases antidiuretic hormone (adh), also called vasopressin, to signal to the kidneys to conserve water. Reabsorption of water leads to lower urine volumes and more concentrated urine. Alcohol blocks ADH release, which is why you urinate so much after drinking. ...Read more

Unclear problem: Unfortunately, there is no "antidiuretic" medication. The main thing is to find out how much urination you actually have at night and then work from there to find out why. Initially, you may need to be seen by a urologist. Then the treatment can be catered to your problem. You should also avoid all "natural" meds, as those can cause an interstitial nephritis and increased urination. ...Read more
Can someone explain the mechanism why there is hypersecretion of antidiuretic hormone in the following conditions:?
I was just diagnosed with syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (siadh). Are there any alternative treatments?
It depends: Siadh can be a serious condition requiring medical care from an appropriate specialist. It would be irresponsible of me to provide you with suggestions for this condition without having an opportunity to review your lab results. I would carefully follow the instructions of your physician. Some conditions can be helped by this forum on healthtap. Siadh is not one of them. ...Read more

Salt causes water retention, why is syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone treated with salt tablets?
SIADH and salt?: The syndrome of inappropriate antiduretic hormone (SIADH) is not treated with salt tablets. The choice of therapy is dependent on the severity of the symptoms. Agents used to treat SIADH are either 3% or. 9% saline infusions, fluid restriction, loop diuretics, vaptan and demeclocycline. The basic problem of SIADH is fluid accumulation in the body causing a low sodium. Salt tablets don't work. ...Read more
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 (vasopressin). However, there are other causes also, such as pregnancy that can cause this area to be infarcted (loss of blood supply). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
