To the Editor: Dr Moser1 has been defending diuretics, rightly or wrongly, for many years. It is common knowledge that he has been a consultant for several companies that have a commercial interest in diuretics. We wonder, therefore, why there is no conflict of interest statement accompanying the article in JAMA. We think that such consultancies can have a detrimental influence on judgment, and we would, therefore, appreciate a full disclosure of any potential conflict of interest.
