Unchanged insulin secretion and glucose tolerance but increased insulin clearance during long-term calcium antagonism with felodipine in essential hypertension.

Abstract

Studies were performed to explore the effect of calcium antagonism with felodipine for 8 weeks on glucose homeostasis and serum lipids in 8 patients with essential hypertension. Fasting levels of blood glucose as well as serum C-peptide, insulin, glucagon and free fatty acids were unchanged following felodipine. During an intravenous glucose tolerance test… (More)
