In previous studies, we reported chronic hemodialysis patients who suffer with headaches to have low renin, low aldosterone, and high blood pressure. We report the role of plasma 18 Hydroxy-II-deoxycorticosterone 18 OHDOC as another mineralocorticoid responsible for such biochemical change. Plasma 18 OHDOC level was found to be low in these patients.
