They wanted to see if the aldosterone rose in which case they could also identify an issue with the renin/aldosterone axis - such hyperaldosteronism but he is fine.

The DHEA-sulfate is also normal - so they checked all the hormones. That hormone is a precursor of estrogen and testosterone. Under stress, it stayed the same as well.
