Gitelmans Syndrome

Hi everyone, I am new to this but have just been diagnosed with Gitelmans Syndrome after spending at least a week each month since January in hospital having IV Potassium as my levels keep dropping life threateningly low. I have been off work all this time and am looking forward to getting back to work soon hopefully. Anyone who has this are you finding it easy to manage to work as well as keep it under control? Many thanks
