Salt Wasting CAH

Hi , My nephew got his 17 hydroprogstron (sp ??) level up . Potassium level is up to, so apparantly he is SWCAH affected , we are not told exactly by his pediatrician but as he is florinef and genkart so I searched by myself this rare disease. As we need to have proper consultation with pediatrician endocrinologist , but we don't know about any . I just read a query abt this matter so wanted to discuss his case . Kindly help us to find good specialist as we have to follow some protocols and full treatment . I tried to get appointment but was told that we are not child endocrinologist. Regards,

CAH is the most common intersex condition in Pakistan. It is taught as a rare disease. SWCAH can be life threatening if not managed properly so you will need to get hormone levels checked every 3-6 months.
endocrinologists usually prescribe the standard treatment which should lower the 17oh progesterone levels. the idea is to keep a good balance for a healthy life. You must get the child's Karyotyping and Ultrasound abdomen done at least once. Understanding the condition always helps the parents take better care of the child
