In Reply.—  I agree with the comments made by Dr Moore regarding my article. Other electrolyte problems have at times been overlooked in view of the more well-known effects of thiazides and other diuretics on serum potassium levels. However, it was not the intent of this particular study to be all-inclusive and to review other electrolyte changes in patients receiving thiazides.
