1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not always

Unless it's onset is with birth and associated with severe salt wasting ( that's why it's part of the newborn screen in all 50 states).
It's carrier rate is quite common however, almost 1 in 40 so many people ate walking around without knowing they are carriers !
