It is widely assumed that Gitelman syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with such electrolyte imbalance as hypokalemia and hypomagnesaemia. The impact of hypothyroidism on Gitelman syndrome and its management is not clear. In this case study, a hypothyroid young woman referred to our endocrine clinic for muscle cramp after the hypothyroidism management. Based on Laboratory and clinical findings, the woman was diagnosed to have been suffering from Gitelman syndrome and the treatment with magnesium, potassium and oral Spironolactone began immediately. After two years of treatment, the woman experienced a successful planned pregnancy.
