Asymmetric dimethylarginine causes hypertension and cardiac dysfunction in humans and is actively metabolized by dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase.
33) Moreover, reductions in lipid, homocysteine, and triglyceride levels and insulin resistance enhance dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase to enzymatically reduce asymmetric dimethylarginine and optimize nitric oxide synthase availability in nitric oxide production.

Inactivation of ADMA occurs via dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase, and it has been hypothesized that this enzyme might be inhibited by homocysteine.
Glucose itself may suppress dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolases activity (7) and increase ADMA, but the mechanisms by which diabetes or insulin resistance may increase ADMA have yet to be elucidated (8).
Enzymatic hydrolysis by dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolases to dimethylamine and citrulline is the major pathway for elimination of ADMA (3).
