Streptozotocin diabetes protects against arrhythmias in rat isolated hearts: role of hypothyroidism.

Abstract

We examined the contribution of hypothyroidism to streptozotocin diabetes-induced alterations in the arrhythmia susceptibility of ex vivo hearts to regional zero-flow ischaemia. Diabetic rats received either protamine zinc insulin (10 IU/kg/day, s.c.) or triiodothyronine (10 microg/kg/day, s.c.) for 8 weeks commencing 72 h after injection of streptozotocin… (More)
