Sure! Didn't know if you saw this reply of mine under another message, so thought I'd post it, in case it would help in convincing your doctor to test for aldosterone:

Aldosterone is the salt-retaining hormone and is a mineralocorticoid. Deficiencies of aldosterone lead to LOW BLOOD PRESSURE and high pulse, especially on standing, the desire to eat salt (salt-craving), dizziness or lightheadedness on standing, and palpitations. When the adrenal is not making aldosterone, renin, a kidney hormone, increases. Deficiencies of cortisol and aldosterone deficiencies may be independent.

Many patients with symptoms of fatigue and often salt-craving, "cognitive fuzziness", dizziness or lightheadedness on standing, or palpitations have low blood levels of aldosterone. - (author: T. Friedman) ~ :wave: Tracy
