This study aimed to investigate the influence of acute glycemic load on vascular endothelial function in patients with hypertension and to evaluate the protective effect of vitamins C and E during the acute glycemic phase. We randomly selected 39 hypertensive patients and 21 normal subjects and divided them into 3 groups: 75 g oral glucose (glycemic load group), 75 g glucose + 0.9 g vitamin C (VC group), 75 g glucose + 2 g vitamin C + 0.8 g vitamin E (VC + VE group).
