I went to mt Endo today to follow up on blood work she did because of episodes of high blood pressure
plus headaches, fatigue, numbness, thirst . . .
I sat for 10 minutes before sitting blood draw.
Aldosterone, serum 14.1 ng/dL
Renin Activity 0.4 ngmLhr
Vitamin D, 25 OH 28.4 ng/mL (range 30 - 60)
previous results from blood work earlier this year:
Potassium 3.3 3.7 3.7 4.1 meq/L (range 3.5 - 5.3)
She said that if Renin were non-existant and Aldosterone over 15, she would do further testing. Since I already take Vit. D supplements, she recommended more sunshine.
I have seen several references to the Aldosterone/PRA Ratio (she did not mention this). Mine would be 35.25. ARUP Lab says "greater than 25 is suggestive of hyperaldosteronism" and Quest says >18.2 is Primary Hyperaldosteronism.
