Dr Jun Yang and primary aldosteronism profiled
After watching her father struggle to battle hypertension — or high blood pressure — for decades, Dr Jun Yang ran some tests and was able to find one targeted treatment that successfully lowered his blood pressure to a healthy level for the first time.
Dr Yang’s father had a hormonal condition called primary aldosterone (PA) — often misdiagnosed as conventional hypertension — which is turning out to be more common than first thought.
Dr Yang, co-founder of Hudson Institute and Monash Health’s Endocrine Hypertension Service, is featured in the latest edition of Clinical Endocrinology News and online in MDedge and Medscape.
