Effects of ARB, tempol or pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC) on glucose infusion rate (determined by hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp) in DS rat. Glucose infusion rate to maintain plasma glucose at 5.5 mmol/l during insulin-infusion period was significantly reduced in hypertensive DS rat, and significantly improved by the treatment of either ARB, tempol or PDTC treatment. *p < 0.05 vs. NS, #p < 0.05 vs. HS; N = 6-7.
