Tests

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.

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.”
