Who discovered ADH (vasopressin) (anti-diuretic hormone)?

ADH (vasopressin) My apologies but I have spent some time on line and could not find the answer to your interesting question. You might go the Medical University's library and see what you can find. The librarian will help you. If you do find out please try and let me know. Read more...

Doc wants 2 do anti diuretic hormone (adh) test for diabetes insipidus. Thought u had 2 b deprived of fluid during ADH (vasopressin) test...Or is that necessary?

Yes. There is a test called water deprivation test which is the gold standard for testing but pt's have to be monitored closely. Therefore, sometimes we may give a trial of ADH (vasopressin) as a pill to see if the symptoms resolve after it has been verified pt's are making >3l of urine a day. 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?

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 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...
