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.
