Research Article: Aldosterone and Mortality in Hemodialysis Patients: Role of Volume Overload

Date Published: February 28, 2013 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Szu-Chun Hung, Yao-Ping Lin, Hsin-Lei Huang, Hsiao-Fung Pu, Der-Cherng Tarng, Leighton R. James. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0057511 Abstract: Elevated aldosterone is associated with increased mortality in the general population. In patients on dialysis, however, the association is reversed. This paradox may be explained by volume overload, which is … Continue reading
