AIMS This study aimed to determine whether fasting plasma glucose (FPG) variability can predict diabetic retinopathy development and progression independently of glycemic control. METHODS Subjects(More)
AIMS We explored whether visit-to-visit variability in both glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) simultaneously predicted the development of microalbuminuria and retinopathy,(More)
Long-term fasting plasma glucose (FPG) variability was a risk factor for proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) independent of the mean FPG or HbA1c in people with type 2 diabetes. PDR development(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between long-term visit-to-visit variability in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease(More)
AIMS To determine whether visit-to-visit blood pressure (BP) variability can predict cardiovascular disease (CVD) incidence in type 2 diabetes patients independently of mean BP, and to analyze the(More)
AIMS To analyze time-to-effect relationships between systolic blood pressure (SBP) and the risks of development of nephropathy and retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes. METHODS We(More)
