Conn Syndrome is rare in children but is more in 10% hypertensive adult patients. [3]


Conn Syndrome is:

In this medical condition, the adrenal glands produce too much aldosterone leading to the loss of potassium, retaining sodium which in turn increases blood volume and blood pressure.

People have a higher risk of developing this disorder if they are 45 years or older, have a family history of high blood pressure, are overweight, use tobacco, drink a lot of alcohol, and have dietary imbalances.
