The fructose-induced hypertensive rat is a widely used model to study the inter-relationship between hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance and high blood pressure. Evidence suggests that hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance may be pathogenic in the development of high blood pressure in this model. To determine the contribution of the sympathetic nervous system towards fructose-induced hypertension, the present study examined the effects of chemical sympathectomy (adrenal medullectomy… CONTINUE READING
