Myocardial fibrosis may be an important contributor to the association of insulin-resistance with cardiac dysfunction. This study aimed to investigate the effects of telmisartan on cardiac function and myocardial type I collagen of insulin-resistant rats. Wistar rats were divided into control, control + telmisartan, insulin-resistant, and insulin-resistant + telmisartan groups. After 34 weeks of intervention, carotid catheterizations were performed to measure left ventricular end diastolic… CONTINUE READING
