Why vasoconstriction and ^TPR in cons syndrome
Why is there vasoconstriction on and increased TPR seen in primary hyper aldosteronism aka cons syndrome . There is fluid retention due to increased sodium retention and low potassium. There is also high blood pressure . I don't understand how volume over load will make vasoconstriction happen??
