low renin, high aldosterone,normal cortisol
I had a cortisol stim test done. My cortisol was normal but my aldosterone was high. They had me come in and check my renin level and that was low. The only thing I could find was primary hyperaldosteronism and people have hypertension with that. I have low blood pressure so I am not sure how that makes sense. If anyone knows anything about this I would appreciate your input. Thank you:)

That is also called Conn's Syndrome.

When renin increases, due to low blood pressure, decreased blood flow to the kidneys or to a sodium deficiency, aldosterone increases; when renin decreases, aldosterone decreases.

With Conn’s syndrome, which is also referred to as primary hyperaldosteronism, excessive aldosterone is produced by one or more benign adrenal tumors, by hyperplasia, for unknown reasons (idiopathic), or rarely, by a cancerous adrenal tumor.
