About Apparent Mineralocorticoid Excess Syndrome

Apparent Mineralocorticoid Excess, also known as cortisol 11-beta-ketoreductase deficiency, is related to hypertensive retinopathy and hypoaldosteronism. An important gene associated with Apparent Mineralocorticoid Excess is HSD11B2 (Hydroxysteroid 11-Beta Dehydrogenase 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism of steroids and "Agents Acting on the Renin-Angiotensin System Pathway, Pharmacodynamics". The drugs Licorice and Enoxolone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, placenta and brain, and related phenotypes are hypertension and hypokalemia

Major Symptoms of Apparent Mineralocorticoid Excess Syndrome

Apparent mineralocorticoid excess syndrome (AMES) is a rare autoimmune disorder characterized by the production of excess mineralocorticoids in the body. The major symptoms of AMES include persistent dry skin, roughness, and peeling, as well as nail growth changes and joint pain. Other symptoms may include fatigue, itching, and a decreased sense of smell. The exact cause of AMES is not known, but it is thought to involve an overactive immune response to mineralocorticoids. Treatment typically involves discontinuing all medications that may contribute to the condition and managing symptoms with supportive care.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Apparent Mineralocorticoid Excess Syndrome

Apparent mineralocorticoid excess syndrome (APS) is a rare endocrine disease, mainly characterized by clinical manifestations similar to hyperadrenocorticism after long-term use of glucocorticoids. People with APS need to pay attention to their lifestyle to avoid worsening of the condition.

1. Adjust your diet: Reduce sodium, sugar, and fat intake, and increase your intake of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Try to avoid foods high in salt, sugar and fat, such as pickled foods, candies and fried foods.

2. Maintain weight: Under the guidance of a doctor, control your weight and avoid excessive obesity. People with APS often need to take steps to stabilize their weight, including regular exercise and following the advice of a doctor or nutritionist.

3. Avoid drinking alcohol: Alcohol can aggravate the symptoms of APS, so it is recommended to avoid drinking alcohol.

4. Increase exercise: Proper exercise can increase the body's metabolic rate and reduce disease symptoms. It is recommended to gradually increase the intensity and frequency of exercise, following the guidance of your doctor or nutritionist.

5. Control mental stress: Mental stress can aggravate the symptoms of APS, so it is recommended to take measures to control mental stress, such as regular exercise, social activities, meditation and relaxation techniques.

6. Follow your doctor's advice: Under the guidance of your doctor, take your medicine on time and follow your doctor's diet and exercise recommendations.

7. Regular review: Regular review is an integral part of the life of APS patients, which can help doctors monitor disease progression and adjust treatment plans. Please note that these recommendations are for guidance only and patients should follow their doctor's advice when adopting lifestyle choices.
