py in all patients at risk for heart disease, regardless of ethnicity or metabolic status. The robust size of this study confirms their conclusions, said Philip R. Orlander, M.D., professor and interim chair in the Department of Medicine at the UT Medical School at Houston.

Diuretics were thought to be poor first choices for individuals with diabetes or the metabolic syndrome because of their known adverse impact on lipid profiles and glucose. One of the major contributions of the ALLHAT study is to disprove this hypothesis. The results of this study should be immediately adopted into clinical practice, Orlander said.
