The drugs Progesterone and Mifepristone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder.

Major Symptoms of Gitelman Syndrome

Gitelman syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the small intestine. It is characterized by progressive abdominal pain, bloating, and a feeling of general illness or malaise. In addition, it can cause malabsorption of nutrients, leading to weight loss and fatigue. The exact cause of Gitelman syndrome is not known, but it is thought to involve an abnormal immune response to the walls of the small intestine. Treatment typically involves medications to manage symptoms and prevent complications, such as antibiotics to treat bacterial overgrowth and biologics to treat autoimmune disorders.
