What happens to osmolarity in a patient with a lung tumor that secretes vasopressin (adh)?

In brief: Decreased osmolarity

Increased osmolality in the blood will stimulate the secretion of antidiuretic hormone (adh), increasing water reabsorption, causing more concentrated urine, and less concentrated blood plasma.
So, if you have ADH (vasopressin) secretion, you will have the opposite effect over time -- remember it is in constant change and balance.
