Hypo-natremia is a potentially fatal complication that has been reported in 3%-22% of patients treated with bortezomib, and has been attributed to direct bortezomib toxicity and syndrome of inappropriate anti-diuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) (3).
pain, nausea, fever, respiratory distress, neurological dysfunction and post-operative states, can put all hospitalized children at a risk of excessive endogenous anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) production.
Dee Atkinson of Napiers Herbalists gives the alternative solution AS children grow, their amount of anti-diuretic hormone increases, limiting how much urine is produced at night.
In addition, angiotensin II causes the release of anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) via stimulation of the posterior pituitary gland.
