There is evidence that the renin-angiotensin system may be involved in the metabolic as well as the cardiovascular features of diabetes and that pressor doses of angiotensin II (ANG II) increase insulin sensitivity in parallel with blood pressure (BP) in healthy subjects, but the effects of ANG II on insulin sensitivity have not been previously reported in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, 11… CONTINUE READING
