Gitelman syndrome is an inherited kidney disease. Gitelman syndrome is caused by a defect in the kidney’s ability to reabsorb magnesium, sodium, potassium, and chloride also known as electrolytes. This is due to a mutation in the gene that codes for one of the electrolyte transporters in the kidney. The absence of this transporter may account for loss of magnesium and potassium and inadequate excretion of calcium from the kidneys. It is estimated that Gitelman syndrome occurs in 1 in 40,000 individuals. It affects both males and females of all ethnic backgrounds. Some of the symptoms include weakness and fatigue, muscle cramping excessive urination, and salt cravings.
