Diabetes higher heart rate. Obese Teens Face Higher Risk for Kidney Disease: Study - Consumer Health News | HealthDay
We investigated the association of autonomic function with 5-year changes in glucose metabolism in individuals without diabetes.
Measures of autonomic function included 5-min resting heart rate and six heart rate variability HRV indices. Associations between baseline autonomic function measures and 5-year changes in fasting and 2-h plasma glucose, serum insulin concentrations, insulin sensitivity insulin sensitivity index [ISI] and HOMA of insulin sensitivityand beta-cell function HOMA of beta-cell function were estimated in models adjusting for age, sex, ethnicity, metabolic factors, and medication.

In models adjusted for age, sex, and ethnicity, higher baseline values of several HRV indices were associated with a 5-year decrease in fasting and 2-h insulin and ISI However, significance was lost by full adjustment. A majority of HRV indices exhibited a trend toward higher values being associated with lower insulin levels and higher insulin sensitivity.
Associations may be mediated via autonomic function; however, results are inconclusive. Resting heart rate may be a risk marker for future pathophysiological changes in glucose metabolism.
