ADH (antidiuretic hormone)

a hormone secreted by neurosecretory cells of the HYPOTHALAMUS and released by the posterior lobe of the PITUITARY GLAND. ADH stimulates the reabsorption of water through the distal-convoluted tubule of the KIDNEY nephron in mammals and thus limits the water content and the overall volume of urine.

ADH

Antidiuretic hormone, or the hormone that helps to concentrate urine during the night.
