Because of the continued issue with low potassium, I saw an Endocrinologist to get a second opinion on the diagnosis of Gitelman’s Syndrome. After going through a complete medical history and some medical tests, I do indeed have Gitelman’s Syndrome.
The good news is that this doctor is going about treating me differently than the Nephrologist. Instead of continuing to increase my Potassium he’s going to increase my Aldactone slowly. Hopefully I won’t need to continue to take Potassium at all.
I also had my Magnesium tested to see if that’s low. If it is, I’ll be taking supplements to get that in order. I’ll have more blood tests now to check my Potassium and Magnesium levels but I’m very hopeful that this lessen my fatigue, muscle cramps and Myasthenia Gravis symptoms.
