  • My daughter has very low potassium and after several blood and urine tests, her physician is very careful about a diagnosis until he tries certain medications for four weeks. He has mentioned the name Bartters syndrome and another possible disease which I do not know how to spell. Can you please give me updated information about Bartters syndrome? Can you suggest any additional Web sites? Also can you give me the name of another similar disease with the same loss of potassium? Click here for answer
