Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) Profile
This test will measure both ADH ( arginine vasopressin) levels in your blood as well as measure osmolality levels in serum.
Antidiuretic Hormone ( ADH or AVP) is a type of hormone that helps control the amount of water reabsorbed by the kidneys during the waste filtration process.
Serum osmolality is the number of dissolved particles in the blood, such as chemicals and minerals like sodium and other electrolytes in the blood.
ADH is released by the pituitary gland when there is an increase in blood osmolality or a decrease in blood volume. When this happens, the kidneys will respond to the release of ADH by creating more concentrated urine and reserving more water for the body, to attempt to restore balance in the body.
