Thiazide Diuretic

Thiazide Diuretics


  • In the present multicenter open trial, we investigated the long-term efficacy and safety of combined antihypertensive therapy with an ACE inhibitor, lisinopril, and a thiazide diuretic, trichlormethiazide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Thus, we report a case of Gitelman's syndrome presenting with quadriparesis diagnosed by using thiazide clearance test.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • : Hyponatremia is an uncommon complication of thiazide diuretic use, which frequently presents with nonspecific symptoms. Identification of TIH is crucial to prevent its potentially life-threatening complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Thus, the goal of the present review was to analyse available data to explain the mechanistic actions of the ARB-thiazide diuretic combination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare salivary flow rate and composition during treatment with the thiazide diuretic bendroflumethiazide in a low dose (2.5 mg o.d.) and placebo.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Short Stature
  • An excellent response to treatment with thiazide diuretic for twelve years is described in a patient with Gordon's Syndrome, the first to be reported from Scotland, and only the second to manifest the full clinical picture of short stature, hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Orthostatic Hypotension
  • No patient had symptoms of orthostatic hypotension or cardiac arrhythmias. Thus, thiazide therapy effectively and safely lowers the BP in most patients with systolic hypertension by reducing systemic vascular resistance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • ., orthostatic hypotension), gout flares, a small but measurable increased susceptibility to the development of diabetes mellitus, and rarely causing an allergic reaction to individuals with a severe sulfa allergy.[renalfellow.blogspot.com]

  • METHODS: We evaluated predictors of blood pressure response in 363 men and women or 65 years of age with primary hypertension (152 blacks, 211 whites), 86 of whom (24%) were untreated and 277 of whom (76%) were withdrawn from previous antihypertensive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Following a 4-week placebo control period, during which diuretic was not withdrawn, the patients were treated either with 37.5-75 mg/day of captopril (n 133) or with 60-120 mg/day of propranolol (n 137) for 12 weeks, the diuretic being continued in both[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


Increased Bone Density
  • Their use has been associated with increased bone density, but their role in preventing hip fracture has not been established.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Potassium Decreased
  • While serum potassium decreased significantly in the thiazide group, the total body potassium was unchanged in this group. In the propranolol group, serum potassium rose, while total body potassium decreased significantly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • FG increased 6.5 (SD 13.0) mg/dL during short-term thiazide treatment and 3.6 (SD 15.3) mg/dL FG during prolonged thiazide treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • ) per QALY gained comparing ACEI-based treatment with diuretic-based treatment (sensitive to the utility value for new-onset diabetes).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment periods were separated by a wash-out period of 2 wk. Resting and stimulated whole saliva was sampled three times daily on scheduled days during the treatment periods.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Ketanserin treatment was associated with significant changes in supine pulse rate (-8 beats min-1, P less than 0.05) and corrected QT interval ( 27 ms, P less than 0.05). Nifedipine treatment had no effect on these variables.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prazosin is a useful alternative to hydralazine in the treatment of hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Moreover, in addition to prospective randomized trials, some long-term epidemiological studies, such as the ARIC (Atherosclerosis Research in Communities) study, have linked different classes of antihypertensive agents with development of new-onset diabetes[care.diabetesjournals.org]
