Figure 1: Procedure and results (control taken from reference 1) of the thiazide diuretic test for diagnosis of renal tubular hypokalemic disorders. Quantification of the diuretic effect was done by taking the maximum increases of urine chloride excretion over mean basal levels calculated by the maximum excretion at any time minus the mean of the two basal clearances. Chloride excretion was evaluated as fractional excretion with creatinine as a glomerular filtration rate marker.
