Primary Outcome Measures:
  • insulin resistance [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]

Enrollment: 16
Study Start Date: January 2004
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2005
Intervention Details:
    Drug: spironolactone + furosemide
    spironolactone 25mg/day, 16 weeks and furosemide 20mg/day, 16weeks
Detailed Description:
Diuretics is useful in CHF patients. On the other hand, they deteriorate glucose metabolism. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of spironolactone and furosemide on insulin resistance in patients with chronic heart failure.
