Coronary Vasomotor Abnormalities in Insulin-Resistant Individuals

This study used PET imaging to determine the cardiovascular effect of dipyridamole and cold pressor testing on young insulin-sensitive and insulin-resistant individuals. They found that the cold pressor test was abnormal in insulin-resistant individuals, suggesting endothelial dysfunction. The dipyridamole test was normal in both insulin-sensitive and insulin-resistant individuals, suggesting normal vascular smooth-muscle in both groups. This research suggest that the cardiovascular effects of insulin-resistance occur prior to the development of type II diabetes.
