Aldosterone Test (ALD)

An aldosterone test (ALD) measures the amount of ALD in your blood. It’s also called a serum aldosterone test. Aldosterone (ALD) is a hormone made by the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are found on top of your kidneys and are responsible for producing several important hormones.

A ldosterone (ALD) affects blood pressure and also regulates sodium (salt) and potassium in your blood, among other functions. Too much aldosterone (ALD) can contribute to high blood pressure and low potassium levels. It’s known as hyperaldosteronism when your body makes too much aldosterone (ALD).

Primary hyperaldosteronism could be caused by an adrenal tumour (usually benign, or noncancerous. These include congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, some kidney diseases (e.g., nephrotic syndrome), excess potassium, low sodium, and toxemia from pregnancy.

How to prepare for the serum aldosterone test?

Your doctor may ask you to have aldosterone test at a certain time of day. The timing is important, as ALD levels vary throughout the day. Levels are highest in the morning. Your doctor may also ask you to:

  • Change the amount of sodium you eat (called sodium restriction diet)
  • Avoid strenuous exercise avoid eating licorice (licorice can mimic aldosterone properties)
