OBJECTIVE Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA index) is predictive of insulin sensitivity in normal and diabetic patients. This study was designed to see if insulin resistance in hypertensives, measured using the HOMA index, differs, based on salt sensitivity, renin status and sodium intake. METHODS Fasting insulin and glucose were determined in subsets of 426 essential hypertensives, and normotensives. HOMA was calculated as fasting glucose (mmol) x fasting insulin (muU/ml)/22.5.
