A 22-year-old male asked:
If someone had low angiotensin ii, low aldosterone and low vasopressin. took florinef (fludrocortisone) would it retain water even though low vasopressin?

Yes: Florinef (fludrocortisone) is a mineralocorticoid. It works in a way similar to aldosterone to increase salt and water retention by the kidneys. It does not rely on angiotensin, vasopressin, or aldosterone for its action.
