    Once red flags are up, where to reasonably follow in pursuit of garden variety aldosteronism? When do I need my endocrinologist?

      Hi Leslie,

      Sorry for late reply. It depends of what you mean by red flags, but pursuing secondary causes of hypertension is an art that will not be practiced the same way by different doctors, even highly trained ones.
