Abstract A method for the simultaneous determination of the metabolic clearance rate (MCR) and plasma concentration of aldosterone is described. From these 2 parameters the blood production rate (secretion rate) of aldosterone was calculated. Using this approach the effect of posture on aldosterone secretion and metabolism was studied in 18 normal male subjects, 3 patients with primary aldosteronism and 1 anephric subject. After sitting, there was no significant change in the MCR. The plasma… CONTINUE READING
