Dear Ted, It's Linda again. I`ve really been upset it has taken my Doctors a year to find out what's wrong with me. The Kidney doctor said i have Liddle`s syndrome, and he said I have to stay on Potassium and magnesium and a pill called spironolactone, a potassium sparing pill. AlsoI have Acid reflux, but I have a salty taste in my mouth and mucus that comes up. Could the acid and mucus that comes up have anything to do with Liddle`s Syndrome? I haven`t felt good for so long,and I cough alot from the mucus and acid . The Doctor didn`t explain to much to me about this.i know my tubes in my kidneys hold on to salt and water,and dump potassium a defective gene. But long term can this be controlled,I won`t die from this . i`ve been so depressed about it, and I have a hard time losing weight, because I hold salt. Please tell me about this .Thank you so much Ted you always help me .
