BACKGROUND In hypertensive patients, the relationships between glucose tolerance and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and left ventricular diastolic function (LVDF) have been described in several reports. OBJECTIVE In this study, we examined the relationships between insulin resistance and LVH and LVDF in hypertensive patients from the therapeutic perspective. METHODS AND RESULTS The study participants were essential hypertensive patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT-HT, n = 26… CONTINUE READING
