OBJECTIVE The correlates of serial changes in aortic stiffness in patients with diabetes have never been investigated. We aimed to examine the importance of glycemic control on progression/regression of carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cf-PWV) in type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In a prospective study, two cf-PWV measurements were performed with the Complior equipment in 417 patients with type 2 diabetes over a mean follow-up of 4.2 years. Clinical laboratory data were… CONTINUE READING
