Answer

Follow-up requirements depend on the cause of the hyperaldosteronism. Patients who are treated medically need regular follow-up to ensure adequacy of blood pressure control and treatment of hypokalemia. In children, doses must be adjusted as patients grow.

In cases of familial hyperaldosteronism, genetic counseling, provided at an age-appropriate level, is also important.
