The neurohypophysis is the back of the pituitary. This part of the pituitary gland is for storing various hormones secreted by the hypothalamus, including the antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or vasopressin (AVP), which is responsible for enhancing water reabsorption in the kidneys and regulate the concentration is of various substances in the blood. When a patient suffers the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of ADH, the kidneys recover water not it should, there is no loss of urine glucose and produces what is known as diabetes insipidus. This condition has nothing to do with diabetes due to lack of insulin, but is so named because it shares certain symptoms, such as diuresis and increased thirst, causing the need for drinking water constantly.
