Telmisartan is an angiotensin type 1 receptor blocker (ARB), which also partially activates liganding peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma. However, the relationship between the effects of telmisartan on hemodynamics and metabolism has not sufficiently been elucidated in clinical settings. We examined the long-term effects of telmisartan on hemodynamics including home blood pressure (BP) and on insulin resistance representing as homeostasis model assessment (HOMA-R). Twenty-seven hypertensive patients were consecutively enrolled at our outpatient department. At entry, all of the participants were previously prescribed another ARB for more than 3 months and then the former ARB were replaced by telmisartan. Hemodynamic and metabolic parameters were measured before treatment and at points 1 and 3 months after treatment with telmisartan. Telmisartan significantly lowered home systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) (DBP) and improved HOMA-R during the treatment period. However, the changes in home SBP and DBP were not correlated with that of HOMA-R. In conclusion, telmisartan lowers home BP and improves insulin resistance without correlation between their changes.
