How is SIADH treated?

The most common treatment for SIADH is fluid restriction of between 30 to 75 percent of normal fluid intake, depending on the severity of your child's disorder. If the condition is chronic, fluid restriction may need to be permanent.

Treatment could also include:

  • certain medications that inhibit the action of ADH (this is rarely used in children because of the side effects)
  • surgical removal of a tumor that is producing ADH
