OBJECTIVE In a recent study, iron chelation with deferoxamine led to improvement of endothelial dysfunction in patients with coronary artery disease. We tested the hypothesis that decreasing circulating iron stores might improve vascular dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes and increased serum ferritin concentration. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 28 type 2 diabetic male patients with serum ferritin levels >200 ng/ml ( approximately 18% of consecutive type 2 diabetic men… CONTINUE READING
