Summary Information: ADH

ADH: ADH is one of the pituitary hormones, chemical substances made and/or stored by the three lobes of the pituitary gland. ADH is produced by the hypothalamus and stored in the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland. Its function is to increase water reabsorption in the kidney and decrease sweating, helping to regulate water levels in the body. ADH also causes vasoconstriction of small arteries in response to low blood pressure. ADH release is stimulated by the hypothalamus. Conditions that can afflict ADH include ADH deficiency, empty sella syndrome, adenoma, hypopituitarism, and head trauma.
