Aldosterone causes loss of k+ in exchange for na+ in the nephron. The volume of water in the urine will follow the na+ back into the blood leading to an increase in blood pressure. Secondary hyperaldosteronism is the pathologically increased secretion of this & renin which could be from renal artery stenosis or other rare causes. See your physician to get it figured out.

In elderly women it can occur in renal artery stenosis. Please discuss with an nephrologist, hypertension specialist or endocrinologist.
