Fasting insulin concentration is related to cardiovascular reactivity to exercise in children.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE One mechanism through which hyperinsulinemia is linked to hypertension is through its stimulation of sympathetic nervous activity. Thus, insulin concentration may be correlated with indices of sympathetic activity before it is associated with resting blood pressure. We tested this hypothesis by determining the relationship of insulin concentration… (More)
