A randomised controlled trial for the evaluation of risk for type 2 diabetes in hypertensive patients receiving thiazide diuretics: Diuretics In the Management of Essential hypertension (DIME) study.

Ueda S, Morimoto T, Ando S, Takishita S, Kawano Y, Shimamoto K, Ogihara T, Saruta T, DIME Investigato - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: Diabetes developed in 25 (4.6%) participants in the Diuretics group, as compared with 29 (4.9%) in the No-diuretics group (HR 0.93; 95% CI 0.55 to 1.58; p=0.800).Antihypertensive treatment with thiazide diuretics at low doses may not be associated with an increased risk for new onset of type 2 diabetes.This result might suggest safety of use of low doses of thiazide diuretics.
