Answer

Frequency and requirement for follow-up depends 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 with familial hyperaldosteronism, genetic counseling is also important at an age-appropriate level.
