Objectives:            The proposed multi-center, randomized, double-blind trial will test whether
                       avoidance of hypokalemia or blockade of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone
                       system will prevent thiazide-induced dysglycemia and investigate the potential
                       mechanisms of thiazide-induced dysglycemia.

Period of support:      09/30/2002 – 05/31//2009
Funding source:         NHLBI/NIH (U01 HL072507)
Funding level:          $7,618,499
Principal Investigator: Jiang He, MD, PhD
Objectives:             The overall objective of this study is to identify susceptibility genes that
                        influence individual blood pressure responses to environmental risk
                        factors for hypertension in human populations.
