Purpose: The purpose of the research is to learn more about how the lining of arteries in the body (called the endothelium) and insulin work in adolescents. Abnormalities in how the blood vessels and insulin work in adolescents may cause high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
Healthy adolescents between 8 and 18 years of age are being studied in the Ohio State University General Clinical Research Center. Two visits will be necessary. One will be a screening visit to determine the child's stage of puberty and obtain a medical history. The second will be the study visit. During the latter, blood vessel function will be determined by studying the change in forearm blood flow before and after blood flow to the forearm is stopped. Insulin sensitivity will be determined using glucose water given into a vein.
