Cleveland, OH, Friday, February 8th, 2013 – Ethan has his regular check-up at the Cleveland Clinic with the Pediatric Nephrologist; which is over an hour from our home. He has broken the lowest percentile plateau for weight at his age for the first time.
We are elated, Ethan is a couple months away from 10 years old and weighs 55 lbs, but often with good news comes bad. He is also extremely low on Iron and anemic. We begin to double his daily intake of Iron to combat the deficiency.
What role does bartter syndrome play in Iron deficiency?
Do other bartter carriers experience this as well?
