Antidiuretic Hormone: Antidiuretic hormone is one of the pituitary hormones, chemical substances made and/or stored by the three lobes of the pituitary gland. Antidiuretic hormone 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. Antidiuretic hormone also causes vasoconstriction of small arteries in response to low blood pressure.
Antidiuretic hormone release is stimulated by the hypothalamus. Conditions that can afflict antidiuretic hormone include ADH deficiency, empty sella syndrome, adenoma, hypopituitarism, and head trauma.
