Relative insulin resistance occurs not only in obese hypertensive patients but also in non-obese lean essential hypertensive patients. Although insulin has complex actions on the circulation, plausible mechanisms by which insulin might raise blood pressure include renal sodium retention and stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system.
