Background: The relation of possible metabolic precursors (especially insulin resistance) to hypertension has been controversial. In addition, these associations may differ by level of obesity or ethnicity. Methods: We followed up 1039 initially nondiabetic, nonhypertensive subjects from the San Antonio Heart Study for 7 years. Results: Hypertension developed in 93 subjects. Age, body mass index, waist-to-hip ratio, and fasting insulin and triglyceride levels predicted the development of hypertension in univariate analyses. After adjustment for age, body mass index, waist-to-hip ratio, gender, ethnicity, and fasting glucose levels, higher levels of triglyceride and fasting insulin predicted the development of hypertension. Body mass index and fasting insulin and triglyceride levels predicted the development of hypertension in Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic whites. In addition, fasting insulin levels predicted the development of hypertension in lean and obese subjects. Increased insulin secretion (as judged by the 30-minute insulin increment) on an oral glucose tolerance test also predicted the development of hypertension. Conclusions: A cluster of atherogenic changes may precede the development of hypertension, and increased fasting insulin concentration predicts hypertension in important subgroups of subjects.

Recent large-scale epidemiological studies demonstrate that blood concentrations of immunoreactive insulin predict the development of NIDDM and IDDM and are associated with the risk of several degenerative diseases, such as coronary and peripheral vessel atherosclerosis, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. The reliability of these measurements is dependent on a biological assay that has not been well standardized between laboratories. Recognizing this, the American Diabetes Association organized a t...

Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance have been implicated as risk factors for the development of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Recent data suggest that proinsulin may comprise a large proportion of immunoreactive insulin in subjects with NIDDM and possibly in those with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) as well. Increased proinsulin concentrations are thought to be an early indicator of a failing pancreas. We examined proinsulin, insulin (using an assay that does not display...

An insulin-modified frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (FSIGTT) with minimal model analysis was compared with the glucose clamp in 11 subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), 20 with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), and 24 with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). The insulin sensitivity index (S I ) was calculated from FSIGTT using 22- and 12-sample protocols (S I(22) and S I(12) , respectively). Insulin sensitivity from the clamp was expressed as S I(clamp)...

Recent data suggest that proinsulin is associated with cardiovascular risk factors in nondiabetic and diabetic subjects. Since most conventional insulin assays cross-react with proinsulin, it has been suggested that the associations of insulin concentrations with dyslipidemia and hypertension could actually reflect associations with proinsulin. We examined these associations by using both a conventional immunoreactive insulin assay and a specific Linco insulin assay that does not cross-react wit...

The extent to which the oral glucose tolerance test can be used to estimate insulin secretion and insulin resistance has been evaluated by comparing glucose and insulin concentrations during an oral glucose tolerance test with specific measurements of insulin secretion and insulin resistance in 85 normoglycaemic subjects and 23 subjects with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). Insulin secretion was measured by the first phase insulin response to intravenous glucose and insulin resistance by the in...

Background The relative roles of obesity, insulin resistance, insulin secretory dysfunction, and excess hepatic glucose production in the development of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) are controversial. We conducted a prospective study to determine which of these factors predicted the development of the disease in a group of Pima Indians. Methods A body-composition assessment, oral and intravenous glucose-tolerance tests, and a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp study were perfor...

To determine the relationship between insulin sensitivity and β-cell function, we quantified the insulin sensitivity index using the minimal model in 93 relatively young, apparently healthy human subjects of varying degrees of obesity (55 male, 38 female; 18–44 yr of age; body mass index 19.5–52.2 kg/m 2 ) and with fasting glucose levels I was compared with measures of body adiposity and β-cell function. Although lean individuals showed a wide range of S I , body mass index and S I were related ...

Recent data suggest that proinsulin is strongly associated with cardiovascular risk factors in diabetic subjects. However, this relationship has not been examined in nondiabetic subjects. Therefore, we examined the relation of proinsulin to lipids, obesity (body mass index), and waist-to-hip ratio in 260 nondiabetic individuals from the San Antonio Heart Study, a population-based study of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Proinsulin was measured by radioimmunoassay, and insulin was measured b...

Risk factors measured in a cross-sectional study in subjects aged 65–74 years living in eastern Finland were correlated with the risk of developing diabetes 3.5 years later. Sixty-nine of 892 initially non-diabetic subjects developed diabetes during the follow-up. Subjects who subsequently developed diabetes had multiple adverse changes in risk factor levels before the diagnosis of diabetes. Subjects who developed diabetes had higher body mass index and waist-hip ratio as well as higher levels o...

Despite the widespread awareness that hypertension and dyslipidemia are risk factors of prime importance for cardiovascular disease, the prevalence of these risk factors is still high, and the success of their control can hardly be considered satisfactory. The latest European guidelines for the management of hypertension strengthened the position of fixed-dose combinations, the main advantage of which is increased adherence to treatment. The purpose of this review was to discuss the background a...

Despite major progress in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, women remain an underdiagnosed and insufficiently treated group, with higher hospitalization and death rates compared to men. Obesity, more frequently encountered in women, raises the risk of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases as women age. There are some differences based on sex regarding the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of dyslipidemia, as it has been observed that women are less frequently pr...

OBJECTIVE: Although the causality of the obesity--hypertension association is established, the potential for prevention is not. We hypothesized that weight gain between early adulthood and mid-life is associated with higher mid-life blood pressure. METHODS: We investigated the hypothesis using a large contemporaneous population-based mid-life cohort of men and women aged 50-64 years. Recalled body weight at age 20 years was self-reported, and mid-life body weight and office blood pressures were ...
