Aliskiren penetrates adipose and skeletal muscle in hypertensive patients with abdominal obesity and reduces renin–angio- tensin–aldosterone system activity. After discontinuation, blood pressure–lowering effects are observed possibly through drug–tissue binding. We performed microdialysis evaluation of adipose tissue and skeletal muscle before and during an insulin-modified frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (IM-FSIGT). Aliskiren 300 mg (n = 8) or amlodipine 5 mg (n = 8) once daily were administered during a 12-week randomized treatment period. Aliskiren elicited variable changes in median interstitial angiotensin II (Ang II) in adipose (2.60–1.30 fmol/mL) and skeletal muscle (2.23– 0.68 fmol/mL); amlodipine tended to increase adipose and skeletal muscle Ang II (P = .066 for skeletal muscle treatment difference). Glucose/insulin increased median plasma Ang II 1 hour after glucose injection (1.04–2.50 fmol/mL; P = .001), which was markedly attenuated by aliskiren but not amlodipine. Aliskiren increased glucose disposition index (P = .012) and tended to increase acute insulin response to glucose (P = .067). Fasting adipose glycerol (-17%; P = .064) and fasting mus- cle glucose dialysate (-17%; P = .025) were decreased by aliskiren but not amlodipine. In summary, aliskiren decreased Ang II production in response to glucose/insulin stimulus and elicited metabolic effects in adipose and skeletal muscle suggestive of increased whole-body glucose utilization.
