Renin RIA

The procedure involves addition of I-125 tracer to a volume of serum in a test tube, incubation and counting of substances under analysis using a gamma counter

What is it for?

  • To determine the quantity of plasma Renin activity for the differential diagnosis of primary and secondary aldosternonism; helps in the diagnosis and treatment of renal hypertension

How do I get ready for the test?

  • No fasting required. Blood is extracted according to physician's instruction whether the patient is in upright or supine position after lying or moving for 2-3 hours

Are there any complications?

  • None
