Renal and adrenal responsiveness to angiotensin II: influence of beta adrenergic blockade.


The increase in aldosterone secretion that occurs in response to Angiotensin II (AII) is enhanced when normal humans are in external balance on a low salt diet. The responsible mechanism has not been identified. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition reduces blood levels of AII and aldosterone, but does not decrease PRA or AI and does not modify adrenal… (More)
