Living with a chronic and genetic illness: the case of the Gitelman's Syndrome
The syndrome of Gitelman is a rare renal pathology. Once diagnosed, it can be efficiently treated through appropriate medicines. Therefore, this illness is generally considered a benign and an asymptomatic one. However, the clinical experience suggests that daily living with the Gitelman´s syndrome is far from easy. This study aims to explore the strategies patients affected by Gitelman´s syndrome use to manage their illness in their daily life.
