Angiotensin-converting enzyme activity and cognitive impairment during hypoglycaemia in healthy humans

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


View graph of relations
In type 1 diabetes increased risk of severe hypoglycaemia is associated with high angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity. We tested in healthy humans the hypothesis that this association is explained by the reduced ability of subjects with high ACE activity to maintain normal cognitive function during hypoglycaemia.
