Khalid Mahmood Qureshi, Raja Zafar Ahmed, Misbahul Islam Khan, Nusrat PashaThe aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of lisinopril on glucose metabolism in mild to moderate hypertensivenon-insulin dependent diabetic patients. One hundred and twenty patients were divided into two groups. Group-A wasgiven placebo of lisinopril for two weeks. Group-B was given lisinopril in a fixed dose of 10 mg once daily for twoweeks. Comparison of fasting blood glucose levels before and after the treatment showed that the blood glucose levelwas almost unchanged.
