High Aldosterone/History of adrnal adenoma-HELP!
Posted in the Endocrinology Forum
#1 Feb 3, 2012
I was diagnosed with a small unilateral adenoma about 5 years ago. It was determined that is was benign but should be monitored. At some point a doctor said he thought it had gone away because they didn't note it on an MRI I had for endometriosis.Turns out, it may have been there all the time. I went to by Dr. recently complaining of severe fatigue, weight gain and hypoglycemia (the latter I was already diagnosed with). He thought it might be adrenal insufficiency and ran some tests. The results were:
CORTISOL, TOTAL: 22.7/H (ref range: 4-22 mcg/dL)
Aldosterone: 92/H (ref range: < or = to 28ng/dL)
Aldo/PRA ratio: 41.1/H (ref range:.9 - 28.9)
Renin 2.24 (normal)
Here's the weird thing-I don't have hypertension, in fact I have low blood pressure and orthostatic hypertension. I travel a lot for work and can't see a specialist for a little while. Does anyone have thoughts about my case? Can it be Conn's syndrome? Any advice would be much appreciated!
