Homeostasis 6

Anti-Diuretic hormone (A.D.H)- the concentration of urine is controlled by a hormone call ADH which is released in to your body through th pitruitary gland

ADH and Drugs- Drugs such as alcohol and ecstasy affect the production of ADH in diffrent ways:

  • Alcohol causes ADH to be supressed so more water leaves the body in the urine
  • Ecstasy causes too much ADH to be produced so to much water remains in the blood osmosis then causes the water to leave the blood causing blood causing brain cells to swell and burst
