Brief Summary:

Aim 1.Test the hypothesis that activation of the endogenous renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system impairs glycemic control via effects on insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion.

Aim 2. Test the hypothesis that activation of the endogenous renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system impairs insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity via an mineralocorticoid-receptor dependent mechanism.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metabolic Syndrome Other: glucose and insulin testing Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

In aim 1 subjects are randomized to cross over between an 8 day high salt and 8 day low salt diet and assessments are made.

In aim 2, subjects are randomized to a 2x2 cross over study with an 8 day low salt diet and either eplerenone 50mg or amlodipine 5mg.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Aim1-Low salt diet
Subjects will be provided with a diet from the Vanderbilt Clinical Research Center that will be controlled for salt content.
Other: glucose and insulin testing
Active Comparator: Aim 1-high salt diet
Subjects will be provided with a diet from the Vanderbilt Clinical Research Center that will be controlled for salt content.
Other: glucose and insulin testing
Active Comparator: Aim2- low salt diet and epleronone-amlodipine
Subjects on a low salt diet will receive epleronone 50mg for 8 days and assessments will be made, then cross over to a low salt diet with amlodipine 5mg for 8days and assessments will be made.
Other: glucose and insulin testing
Active Comparator: aim2- lowsaltdiet and amlodipine-epleronone
Subjects on a low salt diet will receive amlodipine 5mg for 8 days and assessments will be made, then cross over to a low salt diet with epleronone 50mg for 8days and assessments will be made.
Other: glucose and insulin testing



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Insulin secretion [ Time Frame: After 8 days of diet ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Insulin sensitivity [ Time Frame: after 8 days of diet ]
