Aldosterone Test measures Aldosterone Hormone levels in the blood.
Aldosterone helps regulate salt and water balance in the body. If body overproduces Aldosterone then high blood pressure with low potassium levels will be seen. By controlling Aldosterone we are keeping blood pressure in check.
Cortisol Test aids in the diagnosis of adrenal disorders, such as Addison’s disease and Cushing’s Disease. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland and regulated by the Pituitary Gland. It plays an important role in regulating metabolism, blood pressure, blood sugar and the immune system.
Cortisol levels are important as they help the body maintain functions such as: Blood pressure, glucose levels, immune response and stress management.
