In nondiabetic hypertensive subjects, a relationship has been found between insulin resistance and level of blood pressure. Since type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic subjects are often both insulin-resistant and hypertensive, we studied the relationship between insulin resistance and blood pressure level in a group of patients with type II diabetes. Fourteen women and 19 men with diabetes for 2 to 14 (mean, 7.4) years, treated with diet alone (five subjects) or combined with hypoglycemic… CONTINUE READING
