Description

The Aldosterone/Renin Ratio tests are used to assess an individual’s health by measuring the levels of the hormones Aldosterone and Renin. Aldosterone is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland which helps control blood pressure by regulating the body’s water and electrolyte balance. Renin, on the other hand, is an enzyme produced by the kidneys which helps increase blood pressure. By looking at the ratio of Aldosterone to Renin, it is possible to determine the amount of Aldosterone that is being produced by the adrenal gland, as well as the level of activity of the kidneys in producing Renin. This helps to evaluate the status of blood pressure, as well as to identify any potential hormonal imbalances that could be causing problems with it. These tests are important because they provide valuable insight into an individual’s overall health and can be used to diagnose and treat conditions which might be affecting their blood pressure or hormone levels.
