Insulin-mediated glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle is associated with a commensurate increase in muscle perfusion. The link between insulin action and vasodilation may be mediated by endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO). The evidence suggests that insulin causes an increase in the production of EDNO in insulin-sensitive but not insulin-resistant… CONTINUE READING
