Yes, one of the adverse effects of it is hyperuricemia (elevated blood urea) and gout.
Hydrochlorothiazide is used for the treatment of high blood pressure and fluid retention. It is a type of diuretic that works by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood, which causes a decrease in blood volume.
