Primary Hyperaldosteronism/Conn’s Syndrome is related to the excess production of aldosterone, a type of hormone responsible for balancing the nutrients in the blood. This disease results in high blood pressure which may further be the cause for various cardiovascular disorders. Ayurveda provides the best and most effective herbal treatment for Conn’s Syndrome with no side effects ensuring the proper health of a person.
Introduction to Primary Hyperaldosteronism/Conn’s Syndrome
Primary hyperaldosteronism occurs when the adrenal glands start to produce an excess of aldosterone, resulting in reduced levels of renin and high blood pressure. Aldosterone is a hormone that balances the potassium and sodium in the blood on the other hand; renin is an enzyme responsible for regulating the blood pressure. Excessive production of the aldosterone creates an imbalance within the blood cells causing the body to lose more potassium and retain more sodium. This condition further causes the body to hold a high amount of water consequently increasing the blood volume and blood pressure. Primary hyperaldosteronism is named as Conn’s Syndrome as Jerome W. Conn, an American endocrinologist, was the first to describe that the adenomas are a major cause of this disease.
