Effect of the renin-angiotensin system in the vascular disease of type II diabetes mellitus.

A universal underlying abnormality in the pathogenesis of hypertension, atherosclerosis, myocardial dysfunction, and diabetic glomerulosclerosis involves alteration in smooth muscle cell structure, function, and growth. Angiotensin II, through its effects on contractility, growth, and the sympathetic nervous system, may potentially play a key role in this pathologic process and, thus, contribute to the development of these cardiovascular and renal complications of diabetes mellitus. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and some direct renin inhibitors prevent or slow the progression of some of these complications, which further suggests a pathologic role for the reninangiotensin system in diabetes mellitus.[1]
