Description

Plasma Renin Activity Test

A Plasma Renin Activity Test helps determine the cause of hypertension in cases where signs of kidney disease are present.

The renin in plasma is allowed to act on the plasma’s endogenous substrate, angiotensinogen producing angiotensin I. This is measured by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS-MS).

Why The Plasma Renin Activity Test Advised?

A plasma renin activity test may be advised when a patient has high blood pressure and low potassium. Even if potassium is normal, testing may be done if typical medications do not control the high blood pressure or if hypertension develops at an early age. Primary aldosteronism is a potentially curable form of hypertension, so it is important to detect and treat it properly.

If the level of Plasma Renin Activity is higher than the normal level than the person is facing certain problems such as;

  • Addison’s disease
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Essential hypertension
  • Hemorrhage
  • Hypokalemia
  • Malignant hypertension
  • Renin producing renal tumors
  • Renovascular hypertension

If the Plasma Renin Activity is lower than the normal level than it is;

  • ADH therapy
  • Salt retaining steroid therapy
  • Salt-sensitive essential hypertension
  • Primary Hyperaldosteronism
Plasma Renin Activity Test Includes
  • Renin Activity Test (Plasma Specimen)
Plasma Renin Activity Test Conditions
  • 10-12hrs overnight fasting MAY advised
  • A doctor’s prescription may be needed
  • The normal test results may vary depending on gender, age, health history, etc.
  • Inform your doctor if you’ve been taking medicines or drugs, and he might ask you to stop. Certain medications can interact with your Plasma Renin Activity Test result. Talk to your doctor.
  • Home visit service facility available only for total test cost of above ₹999
