Hi, I am pretty sure there is a mistake/need of clarification in the article. On page 296 under Recipient twin; that there " high level of these circulating peptide hormones increase renal perfusion & filtration in an attempt to decrease tubular re absorption of fluid" It is implied in previous sentence that ADH/antidiuretic hormone is also increased. I few different sources I checked state ADH (specifically) is decreased or suppressed to allow for MORE diuresis. Subsequently; there is then a question that specifically asks which hormone is increased with ADH as an answer.... again I believe its decreased. It didnt quite make sense to me so I checked on a few different sources. If I am wrong I apologize! Susan Small, MSN, APRN, NNP-BC, IBCLC
