Hi, My name is Suzanne. I have Gitelman's too. Diagnosed in 1984 with Bartter's and re diagnosed with Gitelman's in 2000 due to Mag issues. How do you tolerate the 10 Mag OX 400mg.

Hi Jessica, Did you have a child.? Last I read you were trying. I am 48 but have two daughters. I had my girls when I was 20-22. It was rough. First pregnancy , that when I was diagnosed with Bartter's 1982. My K was 1.3, I was three months and could not walk. Morning sickness was bad. I took K-Dur and aldactone. I had a few trips to the hospital. Second child was harder. My levels dropped while in labor and they had to increase to help me deliver. I was not allowed to have any medications so birth was natural with both. I was always high risk. My doctors, Endo, Cardio, OB and kidney doctor all agreed I have a tubal ligation. So at 22 that's what I had. Years later I thought medicine may have changed. I looked into IVF to have a child with my second husband. Fertility doctor needed options from Cardio, Kidney doctors. They would not sign off on another pregancy. I took aldactone with both pregnancies. Now I read about birth defects, My daughters are healthy. I just hope their reproductive organs are okay when they are ready for children. I read about defects. So lots of complications during my pregancies. Risky for sure. I like to know how you are. I am always trying to feel better. It's good somedays and bad others. Fatigue seems to be the worst symtom and I alway have GI issues.View Thread
