Medical Effect of thiazide diuretics

  1. Mar 13, 2014 #1
    Having a little query that what is the effect of diuretics (both thiazides and loops)
    on GFR ?
    Athough katzung 12th edi. says loops _ no effect on gfr, but it is silent on thiazides ?
    no thiazides are given when GFR <30ml/min except metolazone while loop diuretics are given in
    heart failure with compromised renal functions(failure). why??
