Description

Aldosterone LCMS and Serum tests are tests that measure the level of aldosterone, a hormone produced in the adrenal glands. The hormone plays a role in regulating the body’s sodium and potassium levels. The tests measure the levels of aldosterone in blood serum, which is the clear liquid part of the blood that separates after it is centrifuged. The Aldosterone LCMS test is more sensitive than the standard serum test, and can detect small changes in aldosterone levels that may be associated with certain conditions, such as low potassium in the blood, or Addison’s disease, a disorder in which the body’s adrenal glands do not produce enough hormones. The results of these tests can help identify the cause of certain conditions, and can be important in helping to assess an individual’s health.
