Insulin sensitivity increase after calcium supplementation and change in intraplatelet calcium and sodium-hydrogen exchange in hypertensive patients with Type 2 diabetes.


AIMS/HYPOTHESIS To investigate the effect of oral calcium (Ca(2+)) supplementation on insulin sensitivity measured by the euglycaemic hyperinsulinaemic clamp, intraplatelet cationic concentration of Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](i)) and the transmembrane sodium-hydrogen exchanger (NHE) activity in erythrocytes in subjects with Type 2 diabetes and hypertension… (More)
