How do doctors diagnose SIADH?

In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, your child’s doctor will order blood tests to measure sodium, potassium chloride levels and osmolality (concentration of solution in the blood).

These tests are necessary to confirm a diagnosis of SIADH.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
