BEN BIKMAN insulin resistance blocks nitric oxide production: blood vessels…lose their flexibility

Kidneys want to dump excess water…
but insulin will not let them
-if one switches to low carb eating
-in one day, systolic blood pressure
can go down 20 points
Insulin resistance won’t allow blood
vessel to dilate
-NORMALLY, insulin binds endothelial
cells lining vessel to produce nitric oxide
-makes vessel’s smooth muscle relax
-dilates blood vessel; drops pressure
