OBJECTIVES We sought to determine whether endothelial vasodilator function (EVF) in patients with type 1 diabetes was related to low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particle size (LDLPS), LDL vitamin E content (LDLVE) or the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation (OxLDL). BACKGROUND Impaired EVF is an early feature of diabetic vascular disease and may be related to oxidant stress. Although small, dense LDL and oxidized LDL are features of type 2 diabetes and predict the development of coronary artery… CONTINUE READING
