Dissociation between albuminuria and insulinaemia in hypertensive and atherosclerotic men

Abstract

To better understand the links between circulating insulin and albuminuria in essential hypertension, the plasma insulin response to a 75 gram glucose load and albuminuria were evaluated in 53 glucose-tolerant essential hypertensives and 12 controls. To allow any direct pressure-independent albuminuric effect of insulin to emerge more clearly, those same… (More)
