Antidiuretic Hormone (also called ADH or Vasopressin) regulates water reabsorption in the kidney, reducing diuresis and increasing blood volume and pressure. The syndrome of inappropriate release of ADH (SIADH) occurs with neoplasia, pulmonary disorders (e.g., pneumonia and tuberculosis), CNS disorders, and with specific drugs.
Inform your doctor if you are on any medications, have any allergies or underlying medical conditions before your Antidiuretic Hormone Blood. Your doctor will give specific instructions depending on your condition on how to prepare for Antidiuretic Hormone Blood.
