    Abstract

    Each of eight adipose but otherwise normal patients on a reducing diet received daily oral doses of frusemide for four days; the degree of hypercalciuria was found to be significant during the first three days, but on day four the calcium excretion in the urine had become normal though frusemide was still being given. The rates of excretion of sodium and calcium in the urine were closely correlated.
