ADH is an abbreviation for the medical term "Antidiuretic Hormone". ADH is a hormone that is released from the posterior pituitary gland that increases water reabsorption in t…he kidneys, resulting in decreased urinary output. (MORE)
Anti-Diurtetic Hormone is a hormone used by your kidneys and determines how much water your body retains or excretes. It is made in the hypothalamus (homeostasis control cente…r of sorts) and this hormone directly effects blood pressure and body water composition (MORE)
In response to dehydration conditions (such as excessive H20 loss through sweating or diarrhea, or reduced blood volume or bp or hemmorhage ) to allow the body to retain up to… 99% of the H20 in filtrate. (MORE)
ADH stands for Anti diuretic hormone also known as Vasopressin. .
It is a peptide hormone that controls the re-absorption of molecules in the tubules of the kidneys by affe…cting the tissue's permeability. .
it also increase peripheral vascular resistance which in turn increase arterial blood pressure. .
it plays a key role in homeostasis and regulation of water,glucose and salts in the blood. (MORE)
Thinking back to secondary school, the pituitary gland. Released when the body is dehydrated to make you store more water by peeing less (so pee is more concentrated with all …the other nasties your body wants rid of). Diabetes is effected or caused by this or something.... maybe someone else can jog my memory on the diabetes ADH thing :) (MORE)
No, it doesn't. It actually promotes water retention inside the body. Before your urethra, millions of tiny tubules are found inside your kidneys which are susceptible to t…he action of ADH. When ADH acts upon them, it increases the permeability of their walls (the walls of the tubules). Hence more water can be drawn out of them and held inside the kidneys, not drained into the urethra. Then this water enters into the blood vessels and hence retained inside the body. This leads to the excretion of a more concentrated, strong colored urine because it will lack water. The lack of water will mean that the volume of the urine will also be reduced, hence the initials ADH meaning anti-diuretic hormone (Diuretic = something that causes urination, anti-diuretic = something that prevents urination).

\nADH is a neurohormone produced by posterior pituitary glad that acts the kidneys to retain water. ADH is released when the solute concentration becomes to high, this usually… is due to dehydration. ADH then inhibits water loss from the kidney's into urine. Thus, urine output decrease. ADH is present in the bloodstream when release from the post. pt. gland. (MORE)
Antidiuretic hormone (ADH), also known as Vasopresin, is made in the hypothalamus but is stored and released from the posterior pituitary. ADH controls the amount of fluid eli…minated from the kidneys (diuresis) by adjusting the permeability of solute-free water filtration in the tubules. Baroreceptors and chemoreceptors monitor the blood pressue and chemical make-up. With lower blood pressure or low salt and water contentration in the blood, these receptors trigger the release of ADH. (MORE)
ADH stands for Antidiuretic hormone. It is a hormone produced bythe part of the brain called hypothalamus. It acts as thecontroller for kidney to release the amount of water t…hat isexcreted in the urine. (MORE)
ADH is the antidiuretic hormone. This hormone is released when the body is dehydrated. Overall the antidiuretic hormone cause the body to keep more water and urine volume decr…eases. This occurs because the ADH attaches to aquaporin proteins lining the collecting duct of a nephron, which open channels for more water going through the nephrons in the kidneys to be absorbed into the body. Since the body is reabsorbing more water, it is decreasing urine volume. (MORE)
Caffeine inhibits ADH causing the levels in the body to lower. Anti-Diuretic Hormone is released when the body wishes to conserve water. The hormone tells the kidneys to reab…sorb more water which results in urine becoming concentrated. Alcohol has a similar effect which is why, when it inhibits ADH, the body no longer attempts to conserve water. This results in frequent urination which eventually becomes clear as less waste has accumulated in the urine. The following morning after heavy drinking, the body is dehydrated resulting in concentrated urine. Coffee and caffeinated beverages are the worst hangover cures for this reason and will only starve the body of water further - resulting in a prolonged hangover! (MORE)
ADH stands for anti-diuretic hormone. Similarities betweenanti-diuretic hormone and aldosterone, a corticosteroid hormonethat regulates salt, include that they both help to re…gular waterbalance. (MORE)
Oxytocin and ADH are synthesized by Hypothalamic neurons in the Hypothalamus and then transported along the hypothalamic-hypophyseal tract to the posterior pituitary where the…y are stored in axon terminals and are released into the blood when the hypothalamic neurons are fired. (MORE)
ADH is what signals the body to retain urine. The reason urine is produced heavily when you drink alcohol the ADH is blocked so you have to urinate more often. Well if ADH i…s present the urine that pass will be more concentrated because resorption of water takes place at distal convoluted tubule of nephron and collecting duct in the kidney. But that happens only if ADH is present. (MORE)
Patients who are dehydrated, who have.(hypovolemia), or who are undergoing severe physical stress.may exhibit increased ADH levels. Patients who are overly hydrated or who hav…e.(hypervolemia) may have decreased ADH levels. (MORE)
