Abstract

Non-obese normotensive type 2 patients have an increased pressor response to NA, which is not based upon a defect in skeletal muscle resistance arterioles, peripheral veins, or a defect in the baroreceptor system. Therefore, in type 2 diabetes the noradrenergic responsiveness of other vascular beds, such as the splanchnic or renal, must be enhanced.
