No aldosterone so sodium and chloride are wasted in the urine and potassium is retained. You can post as much as u want

There will be decreased cortisol and aldosterone: cortisol maintains BP. response to stress, meatabolism and aldosterone salts and water. So no aldosterone so ne retention of na ans cl so hypochloremia.
