These patients may limit diuretic use to maintain continence. Diuretic resistance can be aggravated by the concomitant use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDs, which may negate the diuretic Discontinuing NSAID therapy may correct the resistance. ViewPrint Table. TABLE 3. Another potential cause of treatment failure is diuretic tolerance. Short-term tolerance should be considered when there is a decrease in response after the first dose of a diuretic has been taken. Short-term tolerance is thought to be caused by depletion of intravascular volume, with a compensatory response to protect against further fluid loss. The familiar diuretic spironolactone has taken on new life as a treatment for left-sided congestive heart failure. Spironolactone has been shown to decrease mortality in such patients who are New York Heart Association class IV. It can be used in addition to agents such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and beta blockers, which also decrease mortality, and diuretics and digoxin, which are useful in treating symptoms. This is a corrected version of the article that appeared in print. Katherine L. margo, M. gary luttermoser, M. and allen f. shaughnessy, pharm. Harrisburg Family Practice Residency, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Some heart failure patients on chronic diuretics can undergo excessive diuresis. In the case of diastolic dysfunction without systolic dysfunction, fluid resuscitation may, in fact, improve circulation by decreasing heart rate, which will allow the ventricles more time to fill. Even if the patient is edematous, fluid resuscitation may be the first line of treatment if the person's blood pressure is low. Loop diuretics remain the diuretic of choice for treating patients with heart failure. 3 Furosemide, torsemide and bumetanide are the agents widely available for clinical use, with furosemide the predominant agent of the three. All three loop diuretics are available in oral formulation and are first absorbed in the gastrointestinal track. Once absorbed, the majority of the diuretic becomes protein bound in the vascular space, which in turn requires the drug to be. Theins research examines the genetic factors underlying the phenotypic variability of sickle cell disease and beta thalassemia disorders. Both of these conditions are caused by mutations affecting the beta globin gene. A crucial difference between these conditions is that beta thalassemia results from a reduced number of red blood cells, while sickle cell disease results from abnormal sickle hemoglobin, or HbS, that makes red blood cells rigid and sickle-shaped, causing acute intermittent pain due to blockages of blood vessels and interruption of oxygen supply to vital organs. Diuretics should be initiated in patients whose ascites does not respond to sodium restriction. A useful regimen is to start with spironolactone at 100 mgd. The addition of loop diuretics may be necessary in some cases to increase the natriuretic effect. If no response occurs after 4-5 days, the dosage may be increased stepwise up to spironolactone at 400 mgd plus furosemide at 160 mgd. Next: Diuretics. Class Summary. Diuretic agents are the mainstay of medical therapy in ascites. Spironolactone Aldactone. View full drug information.
