Internal Medicine and Endocrinology
Endocrinologists and Internal Medicine specialists frequently rely on Advanced Instruments’ Osmometer osmolality data as a valuable tool to better understand the relationships between hormones and their effects on serum and urine osmolality. Osmolality data is relied upon to make more informed diagnoses and the subsequent treatment protocols for these types of conditions.
- Hyper/Hyponatremia: Osmolality differentiates between real and factitious hyponatremia. Urine osmolality helps identify the genesis of hypo- and hyper-natremia.
- Inappropriate ADH Syndrome: Serum and urine osmolality help determine whether SIADH is present in a patient with normal blood volume.
- ADH Therapy: Urine osmolality provides a rapid measure of patient response, assisting therapy modification.
- Diabetes Insipidus: Urine osmolality can measure the effects of humoral factors and offers rapid determination of the disease’s etiology.
- Insulin Therapy: Osmolality provides rapid assessment of the effectiveness of the insulin therapy.
- Differential Diagnosis of Polyuria: Osmolality can help to differentiate between diabetes insipidus and psychogenic polyuria.
