Renin Activity and Aldosterone Test

Renin Activity and Aldosterone Test

Price: $101.99

Measurement of renin activity is useful in the differential diagnosis of individuals with hypertension. Renin levels will be elevated in patients with hypertension due to renal artery stenosis (ie, renovascular hypertension). Also useful in the diagnosis of primary aldosteronism. Patients with secondary aldosteronism tend to have low renin levels. Renin can also be used to assess the adequacy of steroid substitution in patients with adrenal insufficiency. Renin activity will be normal in patients with adequate supplementation and will be elevated when steroid substitution is inadequate.
Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.


Includes:
Renin
Aldosterone

Estimated turnaround for results is 5 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.
