Do I need to fast for a Aldosterone Test?

It is essential to fast for at least 10-12 hours for accurate test results. Fasting indicates not eating or drinking anything except plain water before the test. Also, it is important to consult your doctor if you take any medicine, because certain medications may impact the test results. That is why, you should ask your doctor whether you need to fast before any test.

What should I expect during the Aldosterone Test?

You can expect the following experience during a Aldosterone Test:

  • First, you will need to sit calmly in a chair. After that, the healthcare professional will examine your arms to get an easily obtainable vein. This is usually performed in the inner part of your arm.
  • Once they have sited a vein, they will clean that particular area with a disinfecting liquid.
  • After that, the medical professional will insert a thin needle into the vein to collect the blood sample. At this time you may feel a pinching sensation.
  • Once they collect the required amount of blood in the test tube, they will remove the needle and put a cotton ball on the site to stop the bleeding.
  • After that, they will put a bandage on the site.

Usually, the entire blood collection process will take less than 5 minutes.

What should I expect after the blood collection procedure?

After collecting the blood sample, the healthcare provider will send the sample to the laboratory for examination.
