Aldosterone to Renin ratio (A/R- ratio), High aldosterone Increase ratio.
If renin and aldosterone, both are high or normal will not increase this ratio.
If u reverse the ratio, like Renin-to aldosterone (R/A- ratio) than High aldosterone reduces ratio.(denomenator is high)
In short A/R- ratio is High and R/A is low in Primary Hyperaldosteronism.
Hope this help u..
