The glucose clamp procedure activates the sympathetic nervous system even in the absence of hyperinsulinemia.

Abstract

There is a well established connection between hyperinsulinemia and hypertension, and activation of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) by insulin has been proposed as one mechanism. In short term infusion studies, hyperinsulinemia during the euglycemic glucose clamp examination is associated with increased norepinephrine concentration. However, many of… (More)
