Aldosterone plays an important role in regulating the release of sodium and potassium in the bloodstream and in the urine. Aldosterone affects blood pressure levels, blood volume, and reabsorption of water with salt. High aldosterone levels are commonly caused by an adrenal tumor and genetic mutations. Low aldosterone levels are associated with Addison’s disease.

- High blood pressure
- Irregular blood volume
- Low potassium levels in the blood
Symptoms of Low Aldosterone
