Hi, this is my first post on this group so please excuse me if I have
chosen the inappropriate group. I need some information about a rare
disease and whereabouts research is being done on it, etc. The disease
(I do not know the formal name) has at least these symptons: potassium
is not absorbed by the body and simply passes through the digestive
system, loss of muscle use is a result of the potassium loss. This
disease has caused a heart failure once already to my friend and she is
in desperate need to find help.
I would appreciate ANY leads to this problem for a life is in danger here.
Thank you all in advance. Please email directly to phuang at mit.edu
