Clonidine was administered as an antihypertensive agent to 20 diabetic patients stabilized on oral hypoglycemic agents. The study lasted for three months. Sixteen patients completed the study. No patient complained of hypoglycemic symptoms. All patients show­ed a good control of blood pressure. Only two patients showed a rise in post lunch blood sugar level on one occasion each during treatment. There was no significant change in the blood sugar levels in the remaining patients. In conclusion, clonidine does not appear to significantly alter the diabetic control by oral hypo­glycemic drugs.
