The role of increased sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity in the pathogenesis of obesity hypertension and insulin resistance is controversial. Eight dogs were instrumented and fed a high-fat diet (HFD) for 6 weeks. Dogs were evaluated for changes in weight, blood pressure, insulin resistance, and norepinephrine (NE) kinetics using a two-compartment model. The HFD resulted in weight gain, hypertension, and insulin resistance. During the 6 weeks of the HFD, although plasma NE concentration trended toward increasing (P=.09), SNS, assessed by NE kinetic studies, significantly increased (P=.009). Within 1 week of starting the HFD, NE release into the extravascular compartment (NE(2)) increased from 3.44+/-0.59 microg/mL to 4.87+/-0.80 microg/mL (P<.01) and this increase was maintained over the next 5 weeks of the HFD (NE(2) at week 6 was 4.66+/-0.97 microg/mL). In addition to the increased NE(2) there was also a significant increase in NE clearance (P=.04). There were significant correlations between the increase in NE(2) and both the development of insulin resistance and hypertension. This study supports the hypothesis that activation of the SNS plays a pivotal role in the metabolic and hemodynamic changes that occur with weight gain induced by HFD.
