Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Overview

Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) occurs when excessive levels of antidiuretic hormones (hormones that help the kidneys and body conserve the correct amount of water) are produced.

  • The syndrome causes the body to retain water and certain levels of electrolytes in the blood to fall (such as sodium).
  • SIADH is rare in children.

How Children’s approaches SIADH

Here at Children’s Hospital Boston, SIADH is treated through our General Endocrinology Program—a multidisciplinary program that provides comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and management for patients with disorders associated with the endocrine system.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
