Aldosterone Test measures Aldosterone Hormone levels in the blood.
Aldosterone is a hormone that plays a big role in keeping your blood pressure in check.
Aldosterone balances the levels of sodium and potassium in your body. It signals to your organs, like your colon and kidneys, to put more sodium into your bloodstream or release more potassium into your pee.
When the level of aldosterone in your body is out of whack, it could lead to other health issues, including damage to your heart, brain, and kidneys.
