The metabolic syndrome (MS) has been associated with hyperactivity of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). To assess the hypothesis that diuretic therapy in MS patients through further stimulation of RAAS would elicit greater potassium (K) depletion, two groups of hypertensive patients with (MS group [MSG]; n=20) and without (control group [CG]; n=19) MS were studied. Plasma renin activity (PRA), aldosterone (PA), and K levels were determined and an oral glucose tolerance test with p...

The activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is an important mechanism that contributes to hypertension in obese individuals. Thiazide diuretics also activate the RAS in response to volume contraction and can lead to a decrease in serum potassium values and glucose metabolism abnormalities. To evaluate the impact of abdominal obesity on potassium depletion and glucose homeostasis in hypertensive patients receiving thiazide therapy, the authors studied 329 hypertensive patients without kn...

Essential hypertension is a condition of peripheral insulin resistance; thus, fasting plasma glucose level (FPG) alone may not identify glucose tolerance abnormalities. To evaluate the value of an FPG of 100 mg/dL in the detection of these abnormalities in hypertensive women and to identify clinical markers of a high risk of glucose intolerance indicative of further investigation, the authors studied 313 hypertensive women, without known diabetes, in whom an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) wa...
