Syndrome Inappropriate Antidiuretic
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

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
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

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
