A double-blind study of the metabolic effects of trichlormethiazide (TCZ) and diazoxide was performed in 45 hypertensive patients. Each patient received TCZ, 8 mg/day for 3 weeks, then was randomly allocated to one of three groups for 4 weeks. Fifteen patients received TCZ, 8 mg/day (group I); 15 patients received TCZ, 8 mg plus diazoxide, 200 mg, daily (group II); 15 patients received TCZ, 8 mg plus diazoxide, 400 mg, daily (group III). Two-hour postprandial blood sugars (PPBS), serum urea nitrogen (SUN) and serum uric acid (SUA) were measured before and after the trial.
