Insulin Action: Role of Skeletal Muscle and Insulin-Mediated Blood Flow

2014-08-27 03:56:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The overall objective of this proposal is to examine the contribution of changes in total body fat, enhancement in insulin-mediated vasodilatation and enhancement in endothelium-derived nitric oxide production to the improvements in metabolic insulin action. In addition, the study will track whether these improvements are related to changes in blood pressure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
