The effects of excess aldosterone on skeletal muscle in individuals with primary aldosteronism (PA) are unknown. To examine the effects of aldosterone on skeletal muscle mass in patients with PA, Three hundred and nine consecutive patients were enrolled.

Body composition parameters were measured using bioelectrical impedance analysis, and plasma aldosterone …
