Abstract

There is increasing evidence that metabolic disorders are common in patients with hypertension. To evaluate the relationship between glucose/insulin metabolism and hypertension in diabetes, 61 hypertensive uremic insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus patients who were recipients of kidney or pancreas/kidney transplants were studied through a 1-year follow- up. Twenty of them received a kidney (K) transplant alone, 13 received a kidney and segmental pancreas (KSP), and 28 received a kidney and whole pancreas (KWP) with duodenocystostomy. All subjects received the same immunosuppressive treatment including steroids, azathioprine, and cyclosporine. The three groups of patients were comparable for biochemical parameters, clinical characteristic, cyclosporine levels, and renal function (creatinine
