OBJECTIVE The relationship between urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and diabetic complications in NIDDM has not been studied in a large American population. The demonstrated relationship between increased UAE and the development of retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy in IDDM makes this an important issue to also be studied in NIDDM patients.

A cross-sectional population study was performed in a cohort of 890 non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients residing in the greater Denver metropolitan region. Its purpose was to evaluate the relationship between insulin and oral hypoglycemic agents (OHAs) with regard to metabolic control and diabetic complications. The mean glycosylated(More)
The ABCD (Appropriate Blood Pressure Control in Diabetes) trial is a large, prospective, randomized clinical trial designed to compare the effects of intensive with moderate blood pressure control on the prevention and progression of diabetic nephropathy, retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, and neuropathy in non-insulin-dependent diabetes (NIDDM). The(More)
Clinical factors associated with urinary albumin excretion (UAE) in type II diabetes are less well known than in type I diabetes. To examine the factors associated with UAE in type II diabetes, 933 Appropriate Blood Pressure Control in Diabetes Trial patients were classified according to UAE status: normoalbuminuria (< 20 micrograms/min), microalbuminuria(More)
Exercise capacity has been used as a noninvasive parameter for predicting cardiovascular events. It is known that diabetic patients have an impaired exercise capacity when compared with nondiabetic age-matched control subjects, but the risk factors associated with this impairment have not been thoroughly analyzed. A total of 453 male and female NIDDM(More)
OBJECTIVE The primary objective of the ABCD (Appropriate Blood Pressure Control in Diabetes) Trial is to determine the efficacy of intensive versus moderate antihypertensive control on the outcome of type II diabetic end-organ complications in normotensive and hypertensive populations. The secondary objective is to determine whether any differential effect(More)
Diabetes mellitus is associated with significant morbidity and mortality caused by the micro- and macro-vascular complications that all too frequently develop during the lifetime of the diabetic patient. In attempts to treat the complications of diabetes, several different treatment strategies have been investigated. The role of tight blood glucose control(More)
About once a month I join my fellow native Floridians in a massive group cringe as the latest piece of staggeringly shameful Sunshine State news rockets its way around the planet. The latest election embarrassment hit me harder than most Florida fiascos because Human Computer Interaction professionals and journalists were to blame, and I'm an HCI geek and(More)
Seven years of SeaWiFS and three years of MODIS observation data were used to obtain seasonal and interannual time histories of the major water color producing agents (CPAs), phytoplankton chlorophyll (chl), dissolved organic carbon (doc) and suspended minerals (sm) for Lake Michigan. Correlations of the retrieved CPAs with the coincident environmental(More)
