    Algorithm: Diagnostic Workup of Primary Aldosteronism

    algorithm for diagnosing primary aldosteronism

    Primary Aldosteronism Diagnosis Algorithm

    Primary aldosteronism is characterized by elevated plasma aldosterone levels that leads potassium loss, hypertension secondary to sodium reabsorption and volume expansion and at times metabolic alkalosis.

    In order to discuss the diagnostic approach for primary aldosteronism in terms of both blood tests and imaging tests, I have designed this algorithm after reading the society of endocrine guidelines and indications of each test.

    Feel free to contact me in case there's any discrepancy between this algorithmic approach versus standard approach of diagnosing primary aldosteronism.
