Answer

Mineralocorticoids

Mineralocorticoids may be useful for aldosterone deficiency. Combine mineralocorticoid therapy with sodium loading and diuretics to prevent heart failure.

Fludrocortisone

Fludrocortisone promotes increased sodium reabsorption and potassium loss in renal distal tubules.
