English Thiazide diuretics enhance renal Na⁺ excretion by blocking the Na⁺-Cl⁻ cotransporter (NCC), and mutations in NCC result in Gitelman syndrome. The mechanisms underlying the accompanying hypocalciuria and hypomagnesemia remain debated. Here, we show that enhanced passive Ca²⁺ transport in the proximal tubule rather than active Ca²⁺ transport in distal convolution explains thiazide-induced... Show more…
