Liddle Syndrome is an inherited, genetic disorder that affects children. It is a form of high blood pressure or hypertension condition with usually no additional signs or symptoms. Affected individuals can also have low levels of potassium in blood, known as hypokalemia. This can cause muscle weakness, pain, fatigue, constipation and heart palpitations.
HOW IS LIDDLE SYNDROME DIAGNOSED?
Evaluating a child with persistent high blood pressure requires testing of the blood electrolytes as well as aldosterone level. A genetic study of ENaC sequence can help in identifying the genetic mutations that can cause the condition.
HOW IS LIDDLE SYNDROME TREATED?
Treatment for this syndrome usually includes having a very low sodium diet and consuming potassium-sparing diuretic drugs to block the sodium from making the body pressure worse. For pregnant women, drugs like Amiloride are considered to be safe. Alongside other medications are also given to treat hypokalemia associated with this problem.
