In a randomized double-blind placebo controlled parallel study involving fourteen healthy male volunteers, we examined whether the acute reduction in vascular volume associated with frusemide ingestion would haemoconcentrate lipid particles. Three hours after a single 40 mg oral dose of frusemide, there were 9.6-14.4% increases in lipids and lipoproteins which were highly correlated to changes in body weight. Until further studies determine the extent of haemoconcentration in patients being… CONTINUE READING
