Insulin sensitivity, vascular reactivity, and clamp-induced vasodilatation in essential hypertension.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Insulin resistance and vascular abnormalities have both been described in patients with essential hypertension. Whether these defects are associated with one another in the same individual has not been established. METHODS AND RESULTS Whole-body insulin sensitivity (by the insulin clamp technique), forearm minimal vascular resistances, and the… (More)
