There is increasing recognition that hypertension is only one facet of a metabolic syndrome that represents a cluster of risk factors including insulin resistance evident during long-term development of cardiovascular disease. The objectives of the present study were to evaluate glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity in the Dahl genetic salt-sensitive rat model of hypertension and to find out whether there is a correlation between high blood pressure, salt sensitivity and insulin… CONTINUE READING
