Definition:An inherited renal disorder characterized by defective NaCl reabsorption in the convoluted DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE leading to HYPOKALEMIA. In contrast with BARTTER SYNDROME, Gitelman syndrome includes hypomagnesemia and normocalcemic hypocalciuria, and is caused by mutations in the thiazide-sensitive SODIUM-POTASSIUM-CHLORIDE SYMPORTERS.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: GTLMNS;   Gitelman's syndrome;   Potassium and Magnesium Depletion;   familial hypokalemia hypomagnesemia;   primary renotubular, hypokalemia-hypomagnesemia with hypocalciuria;   tubular hypomagnesemia hypokalemia with hypocalcuria
 primary_id: MESH:D053579
 alt_id: OMIM:263800;   RDO:0000113
 xref: GARD:8547;   NCI:C84730
