How hyponatremia is associated with hypothyroidism?

Pituitary gland

Hypothyroidism
There is an unusual type of hypothyroidism (primary) that is caused from a pituitary deficiency and also a type of hyponatriema (low sodium) that is caused from a pituitary deficiency, secondary adrenal insufficiency, caused by deficiency of ACTH (produced by the pituitary gland) so that is where the connection may be- rare. Recent research suggests very little association. Good health

What is being hypothyroid?

Inadequate hormones

Thyroid
The thyroid creates a hormone that regulates metabolism in the body. It works on a number of different organ systems, and is essential to proper body function. If the thyroid stops producing the hormone, you become hypothyroid. This can happen by antibody destruction, direct destruction of the thyroid gland, removal (tumor), or interruption of the stimulating signal from the brain.
