The present study examined the hemodynamic mechanisms of blood pressure (BP) lowering by troglitazone in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) at rest and during a mental arithmetic test (MAT). Twenty-two patients with DM with normal to high-normal BP and 12 controls matched for age, gender, glucose tolerance, and BP were studied. DM subjects showed significantly higher systolic BP response during MAT than controls (157 versus 139 mm Hg; P<0.01). All 22 DM patients and 5 of 12 controls… 
Rosiglitazone improves insulin sensitivity and lowers blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
TLDR
Rosiglitazone treatment of nondiabetic hypertensive patients improves insulin sensitivity, reduces systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and induces favorable changes in markers of cardiovascular risk, suggestingulin sensitizers may provide cardiovascular benefits when used in the treatment of patients with hypertension.
Ambulatory blood pressure reduction after rosiglitazone treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes and hypertension correlates with insulin sensitivity increase
TLDR
Treatment of type 2 diabetic hypertensive patients with rosiglitazone significantly increased insulin sensitivity and lowered ambulatory BP, suggesting that thiazolidinediones may possess a BP-lowering effect beyond their antihyperglycemic properties.
A comparison of the effects of rosiglitazone and glyburide on cardiovascular function and glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Investigation of the cardiac safety and antihyperglycemic effect of rosiglitazone in patients with type 2 diabetes found decreases in ambulatory diastolic blood pressure with RSG were superior to those with GLB.
Correlation between changes of blood pressure with insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes mellitus with 4 weeks of pioglitazone therapy
TLDR
Results suggest that pharmacodynamic effects of PIO mainly affect the systolic component of type 2 diabetes mellitus and suggest that reduction of BP by PIO is independent from mechanisms of changes in IR and dyslipidaemia in normotensive diabetic patients.
Long-term cardiovascular effects of insulin sensitizer troglitazone on non-diabetic individuals with insulin resistance: double blind, prospective randomized study.
TLDR
Long-term administration of troglitazone to non-diabetic African-Americans with insulin resistance was associated with a decrease in the elastic properties of the aorta, and long-term therapy with trog litazone or similar agents for the prevention of cardiovascular complications in non-Diabetic individuals with insulin Resistance has to be critically evaluated.
Rosiglitazone, but Not Pioglitazone, Improves Myocardial Systolic Function in Type 2 Diabetic Patients: A Tissue Doppler Study
TLDR
While rosig litazone and pioglitazone therapy improved metabolic parameters, blood pressure values and diastolic function similarly, in type 2 diabetic patients, only rosigsiglitaz one improved systolic myocardial function significantly.
Cardiovascular and sympathetic effects of reversing insulin resistance in hypertension.
  • G. Grassi
  • Medicine
    Journal of hypertension
  • 2004
TLDR
A study aimed at exploring the effects of troglitazone (an insulin sensitizer belonging to the thiazolidinedione group) on a number of cardiovascular variables, as well as on cardiac sympathetic neuronal function in essential hypertensives.
Troglitazone Improves Cardiac Function in Patients with Congestive Heart Failure
TLDR
Hemodynamic changes suggest that a single oral dose of troglitazone induced inotropy without activation of the sympathetic nervous system, in diabetic patients with congestive heart failure.
Pioglitazone Lowers Blood Pressure in Hypertensive Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
The aim of this study was to investigate whether it is recognised that certain co-morbidities treatment with pioglitazone in an unselected popularequire special attention and must be addressed and whether this should be addressed.
Hypertension and nephropathy.
  • G. Bakris
  • Medicine
    The American journal of medicine
  • 2003
TLDR
Study results suggest that initiating therapy with inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin system and adding diuretics may be useful in reducing arterial pressure to levels <130 mm Hg and may attenuate the progression of nephropathy.

Enhancement of insulin sensitivity by troglitazone lowers blood pressure in diabetic hypertensives.
TLDR
Troglitazone treatment induces improvement in both glucose metabolism and blood pressure control in essential hypertensive patients with diabetes mellitus, suggesting that insulin resistance or plasma insulin level plays a role in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension.
Moderately obese, insulin-resistant women exhibit abnormal vascular reactivity to stress.
TLDR
It is concluded that insulin resistance is associated with an exaggerated blood pressure response to stress; an enhanced vasoconstriction to stress may mediate this response and may be a marker for future hypertension in obese, normotensive, hyperinsulinemic individuals.
Improvement in glucose tolerance and insulin resistance in obese subjects treated with troglitazone.
TLDR
The ability of troglitazone to reduce insulin resistance and improves glucose tolerance in obese subjects with either impaired or normal glucose tolerance could be useful in preventing NIDDM.
Troglitazone, an insulin sensitizer, increases forearm blood flow in humans.
TLDR
The results suggest that troglitazone increases muscular blood flow through vasodilation induced by a mechanism other than the correction of hyperinsulinemia or the increase in nitric oxide.
Insulin sensitivity, sympathetic activity, and cardiovascular reactivity in young men.
TLDR
In the present study, GDR/I is related to diastolic but not to systolic BP, and more closely correlated to diastsolic BP and HR measured during mental stress than toDiastolicBP and HR during baseline conditions at home.
Troglitazone lowers blood pressure and enhances insulin sensitivity in Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits.
TLDR
Whether troglitazone, a new thiazolidinedione drug for insulin resistance, could reduce blood pressure (BP) by improving hyperinsulinemia in WHHL rabbits is investigated and it is suggested that reduced BP may be partly associated with changes in the sympathetic nervous system activity.
Effects of insulin on vascular responses to mental stress and norepinephrine in human forearm.
TLDR
Forearm glucose uptake increased during stress, reflecting forearm hyperperfusion since fractional glucose extraction was unaffected by stress, and increased blood flow was maintained throughout the five norepinephrine dose steps.
Essential Hypertension: An Insulin‐Resistant State
TLDR
Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are consistently associated with hypertension independently of obesity and NIDDM; the insulin resistance of essential hypertension manifests itself mostly as a selective inability of insulin to stimulate glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscle; and although probably under genetic control, insulin resistance is insufficient to explain the prevalence of hypertension against a divergent ethnic background.
Role of nitric oxide in the vasodilator response to mental stress in normal subjects.
TLDR
Findings indicate that local release of NO is involved in the forearm vasodilator response to mental stress.

TLDR
Increased central nervous system mediated adrenergic activity and cardiovascular response in labile hypertension and also in some normotensive subjects with a genetic risk for hypertension are demonstrated.
