Effect of an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, candesartan, on insulin resistance and pressor mechanisms in essential hypertension


Candesartan (8 mg/d) was administered for 2 weeks to eight patients with essential hypertension to investigate the effect of an angiotensin II receptor antagonist on insulin sensitivity. The effect of candesartan on sodium-retaining action and the activation of pressor systems by hyperinsulinaemia, which might be related to pressor mechanisms in essential… (More)
