My potassium level stays low constantly, I have a high level of Aldosterone and Magnesium. I also have hypertension, I have been checked for diabetes, but my pancrease is functioning normally. I've had a CAT scan and so much blood work done. My adrenal glands and kidneys seem to be fine and working properly, what could my diagnosis be?

  • low potassium...what other sx do you have??? go to www.ahummingbirdsguide.com see how many other sx you have...muscle weakness, pain joint pain, migranes, diarrhea/constipation/ flushing difficulty with memory, balance, coughing??? on home page to L is list of symptoms...click there go to bottom of first paragraph, there is a summary of symptoms list the ones you have...if there is a significant amount take info to Dr. There are several people on this site having ME and I believe it's way too many for it just to be a coincidence...please excuse my fervor in this matter but it is viral, contagious, and I believe of an epidemic proportion..Good luck...mommy cat

  • I don't have any of the systoms that you listed. My problems have something to do with Aldosterone and the adreanal glands. I am just unsure if it is primary aldosterism.
