OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of nateglinide and metformin alone and in combination in type 2 diabetic patients inadequately controlled by diet, focusing on changes in HbA1c, fasting plasma glucose (FPG), and mealtime glucose excursions. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In this randomized double-blind study, patients with an HbA1c level(More)
Patients with high blood pressure tend to be insulin resistant, glucose intolerant, hyperinsulinemic, and dyslipidemic. Since these metabolic defects are accentuated by obesity, we thought it important to compare the effects of 3 months' treatment with either lisinopril (20 mg/day) or low dose hydrochlorothiazide (12.5 mg/day) on blood pressure and glucose,(More)
Various facets of glucose, insulin, and lipid metabolism were compared in 76 normal volunteers--38 with and 38 without a family history of hypertension. The two groups were comparable in terms of age, gender distribution, and degree of obesity (both generalized and abdominal). Although the plasma glucose response to oral glucose was similar in both groups,(More)
Resistance to insulin-mediated glucose disposal has been previously shown to be increased in association with obesity, high blood pressure, and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. We initiated the present study to quantify the separate effects of hypertension and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus on insulin resistance in both nonobese and obese(More)
Regulation of atrial natriuretic hormone (ANH) receptor binding and aldosterone suppression was studied in isolated adrenal glomerulosa cells from rats fed a high-salt (HS) or low-salt (LS) diet for 3 days. In plasma of HS rats, aldosterone levels were 5 times lower and immunoreactive ANH two times higher than in LS rats. Competitive binding studies showed(More)
To investigate the mechanisms by which small changes in plasma levels of atrial natriuretic hormone (ANH) affect aldosterone, 10 normal young men were infused for 2 h with 0.6 pmol/kg.min human [Ser,Tyr28]ANH under 3 study conditions: 1) high salt diet (H), 2) low salt diet (L), and 3) low salt diet plus pretreatment with the angiotensin-converting enzyme(More)
Thirty patients with hypertension were enrolled in this study, 13 had non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and 17 were nondiabetic. Patients were treated with doxazosin for approximately 4 months, and blood pressure fell significantly (P < .001) in both nondiabetics (149/96 to 134/85 mm Hg) and in those with NIDDM (154/96 to 143/84 mm Hg). In the(More)
The effect of atrial natriuretic hormone (ANH) on metoclopramide-induced stimulation of aldosterone was studied in eight healthy young men after 3 days of controlled diet (150 mEq sodium, 100 mEq potassium). Baseline values were obtained after subjects had remained sitting for 1 hour. Subjects then received 2-hour infusions of placebo, dopamine (2(More)
To further assess the mechanism of atrial natriuretic hormone (ANH) induced suppression of aldosterone, we infused 0.5 pmol/kg/min Ser-Tyr28 human ANH over 2 h under three dietary conditions: low salt (LS), low potassium (LK), and high potassium (HK). The diets were consumed for 3 days before each study day. After 3 days of LK diet, blood pressure was(More)
