Aldosterone

Aldosterone is the principal mineralocorticoid hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex. It has two important functions which are the regulation of the extracellular liquid volume and of potassium metabolism. The determination of aldosterone levels is essential in the diagnosis of both primary and secondary hyperaldosteronism.
