What is the definition or description of: syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone?

What is the definition or description of: syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone?

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

Can you get syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone without having symptoms?

Can you get syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone without having symptoms?

Low sodium: Yes, it is common to have a low sodium from SIADH without symptoms. Your body becomes accustomed to the low na, so you don't feel it. It would be important to know why you have siadh. ...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

I was just diagnosed with syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (siadh). Are there any alternative treatments?

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

If you have the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH (vasopressin)), is it possible that your ADH (vasopressin) levels stay constant?

SIADH: If you have the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH (vasopressin)), is it possible that your ADH (vasopressin) levels stay constant? ANS: yes it means your ADH is inappropriate for your osmols and the cause is not know. At least yet. ...Read more

Do any docs think urea would be a good treatment for syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone?

Nope: No, it would not be a good treatment for SIADH. The standard for SIADH is water intake restriction. Tolvaptan is also a new option. Talk to an endocrinologist or nephrologist. ...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

Dandelion root: The simple answer is NO!

Please go online to "WebMD" and look for dandelion root.
You will learn a lot and make up your own mind to decide if it is a good idea or not.

Don't forget costs. ...Read more

What do antidiuretic hormones do?

What do antidiuretic hormones do?

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

What's antidiuretic hormone function?

What's antidiuretic hormone function?

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

What effect does alcohol have on ada, antidiuretic hormone?

What effect does alcohol have on ada, antidiuretic hormone?

Inhibits it: Alcohol is an inhibitor of adh, (vasopressin) or antidiuretic hormone. ADH (vasopressin) causes one not to urinate, so blocking it causes increased urination. This is the reason why drinking alcohol can actually lead to dehydration. ...Read more

What exactly does the antidiuretic hormone have to do with urinary volume?

What exactly does the antidiuretic hormone have to do with urinary volume?

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

Could prescription antidiuretic cut down on nighttime urination if this is the only problem?

Could prescription antidiuretic cut down on nighttime urination if this is the only problem?

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

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 more

Production of antidiuretic (adh), thyroxine and t3, (liothyronine) parathyroid (pth), hormones of the adrenal cortex and the pancreas, can you tell me about this?

Production of antidiuretic (adh), thyroxine and t3, (liothyronine) parathyroid (pth), hormones of the adrenal cortex and the pancreas, can you tell me about this?

Complex: Please ask a specific question. This is way too complex and vague to answer. If you want to know about all these hormones, consider an Endocrinology fellowship at a major teaching hospital. Of course, before that, you will need a BS, an MD, and a 3 yr Internal Medicine residency. ...Read more

What is anti-diuretic hormone? What does it do?

What is anti-diuretic hormone? What does it do?

ADH (vasopressin): Hi. Antidiuretic hormone (ADH (vasopressin)) is a peptide hormone made in the hypothalamus and released from the posterior pituitary. Its 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

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

Can you tell me about anti diuretic hormone?

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
