After years of having a low potassium level that would get so low my muscles would completely cramp making it impossible to move, my family doctor decided it was time to see a nephrologist. The doctor that I saw was very knowledgeable but puzzled by my case. He diagnosed me with Gitelman Syndrome, an inherited kidney disease caused by a defect in the kidneys ability to reabsorb magnesium, sodium, potassium, and chloride. My family believed that it could be controlled with medication and things would improve. As time went on, despite many alterations to the medication, there was no significant improvement. UPDATE: I am qualified to donate, and match the blood type he needs, and coincidentally I am also an organ donor! I will keep you posted if my kidney will be a match for Remy! Prayers!
