BACKGROUND Endothelial dysfunction has been regarded as an early stage in the atherosclerotic process. Endothelial dysfunction and insulin resistance were observed in hypertensive subjects and were associated with carotid wall thickening. METHODS We examined the determinants of endothelial dysfunction including insulin sensitivity and carotid wall thickening. A total of 41 subjects with nondiabetic essential hypertension were studied. Endothelial function of brachial artery and carotid wall… CONTINUE READING
