Aldosterone is a hormone that increases the reabsorption of sodium and water and the release (secretion) of potassium in the kidneys. This increases blood volume and, therefore, increases blood pressure. Conversely, drugs that interfere with the secretion or action of aldosterone are in use as antihypertensives. One example is spironolactone which lowers blood pressure by blocking the aldosterone receptor. Aldosterone is part of the renin-angiotensin system. A measurement of aldosterone in blood may be termed a plasma aldosterone concentration (PAe, which may be compared to plasma renin activity (PRA) as a PAC/PRA ratio.
