Impairment of the postural venoarteriolar response in young type 1 diabetic patients. A study by laser doppler flowmetry.

The skin blood flow and venoarteriolar response (VAR) in the feet of the young type 1 diabetic patients were studied with laser Doppler flowmetery. The findings were correlated with diabetic microangiopathy in 24 young patients without neuropathy--14 with diabetic microangiopathy, 10 without--and 10 healthy controls. In type 1 diabetic patients and skin… CONTINUE READING
