Endothelial dysfunction is regarded as an early stage of atherosclerosis, and plays a role in the development of atherosclerotic diseases. Insulin resistance is related to the atherosclerotic process. In this study, we examined the association between endothelial function and insulin resistance in 48 subjects with type 2 diabetes. In addition, the effects of pioglitazone treatment on endothelial function and insulin resistance were investigated in a subgroup of subjects. Endothelial function of… CONTINUE READING
