Abstract:

Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone SIADH is a condition in which the body has normal adrenal cortical function and normal systemic sodium levels, but an inappropriate concentration of antidiuretic hormone ADH in relation to body fluid osmolality. SIADH is a fairly common condition, accounting for up to one-third of all cases hyponatremia. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, including brain trauma, hormone-producing neoplasms advanced age idiopathic, genetics, nervous system or pulmonary disorders, medications, endocrine disease, immunosuppressive disease, and activities such as endurance exercise.
