    Has anyone been diagnosed with one of these?

    I have struggled with low energy, low blood pressure, and polyurea pretty much my whole life. Now I'm starting to think that what I have has a name and a treatment (besides cfs).

    What makes me think I might have one of those syndromes is that I have low potassium and low blood pressure. Usually low potassium will cause high blood pressure unless you have either Bartter syndrome or Gitelman syndrome.

    Any thoughts?

    I think there is a simple test that could give you a hint. You need to check ph of your blood. In case of Bartter/Gitelman syndrome it should be alkalic I guess.

    Does anyone know anything more about Gitelman? I ran my genes and I have 3 homozygous mutations and 2 heterozygous in SLC12A3 and some of the symptoms but I don't know which SNP is the relevant SNP. Or are they all relevant? Any help would be appreciated
