Before I found out about EDS, I was convinced my hormones were way out of whack. Somehow or other my renin/aldosterone ratio was checked and it turned out to be very high. 4 times higher than normal. It was checked again – second time only twice as high.
Then I asked for a salt loading test – the renin/aldosterone ratio was at the very upper limit of normal, with normal suppression and urinary excretion. So this proved to be basically a dead end.
My blood pressure is naturally very low, not high.
Anyone else like this?
Yes, and I have the classic form of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. EDSers often have hormonal problems. I have polycystic ovarian disease and had trouble conceiving and maintaining a pregnancy. My body naturally crave salt so I’m considered a salt loader, and others in my family with the classic form of EDS also salt load, yet we all have low blood pressure.
