Study the effect of Valsartan-Hydrochlorothiazide drugs on the level of blood electrolytes in the sera of hypertensive patients who audited to General Hospital of Samarra

Abstract

This study involved a comparison of blood electrolytes concentrations that include sodium, chloride, potassium, and phosphate in the sera of hypertensive patients who were taking Valsartan-hydrochlorothiazide 80mg /12.5mg blood pressure-lowering combination drugs who were attending General Hospital of Samarra versus a group of healthy people as a control group.
The results showed a significant decrease in concentrations of Sodium, potassium, chloride and phosphate at the same significant at level p <0.01. A comparison was also made between males of the test group (the patient group) versus males of the control group, the result showed a significant decrease in the concentration of sodium, potassium, chloride and phosphate at a significant level p <0.01. And the comparison of electrolytes concentrations in the test Female group (the patient group) versus the control Female group, showed a significant decrease in the potassium and phosphate concentration at the level o p f <0.01. However, the study did not see any significant differences in the level of chloride and sodium in the women of the test group compared to the control group.
