9 Both hyperglycemia and insulin activate the renin angiotensin system (RAS) by increasing the expression of angiotensinogen, angiotensin II, and the angiotensin II type 1 receptor, which may contribute to the development of hypertension in patients with insulin resistance.
Loria, assistant research scientist in Pollock's lab and also a co-author on the new abstract, has shown that the blood pressure of maternally separated rats goes up more in response to angiotensin II and their heart rates go higher as well.
The research shows that when candesartan blocks the angiotensin II type 1 receptor, which lowers blood pressure, it stimulates the AT2 receptor and increases the secretion of BDNF, which encourages brain repair through the growth of new blood vessels.
