[Behavior of aldosterone and plasma renin activity after ACTH administration and insulin-induced hypoglycemia in patients with essential arterial hypertension].

Abstract

The response of plasma aldosterone (PA) and plasma renin activity (PRA) to ACTH stimulation (0.25 mg Tetracosactide infusion/10 h) and to insulin-induced hypoglycemia (0.1 U/kg b.w.) has been studied in 34 essential hypertensive (EH) patients. Corticotrophin stimulation increases significantly PA, the percent increase being higher in normal PRA EH patients… (More)
