Decreased carotid atherosclerotic process by control of daily acute glucose fluctuations in diabetic patients treated by DPP-IV inhibitors.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Blood glucose fluctuations have been found to be relevant to the progression of atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes and to be more detrimental for the development of atherosclerosis than the sustained hyperglycemia. We aim at evaluating the effect of blunted daily acute glucose fluctuations by DPP-IV inhibitors on intima-media… (More)
