Regional Hospital Holstebro
We wanted to test the hypothesis that acute treatment with atorvastatin changes renal sodium excretion, glomerular filtration rate, tubular function and vasoactive hormones in patients with type II diabetes, not in treatment with insulin.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Subjects Drug: Atorvastatin Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Acute Effect of Atorvastatin on Renal Sodium Excretion, Glomerular Filtration Rate, Tubular Function and Vasoactive Hormones in Patients With Non-Insulin Dependent Type II Diabetes.
