AIMS/INTRODUCTION Although arteriosclerotic diseases have been reported to be frequently complicated by diabetes mellitus (DM), a detailed relationship between hyperglycemia and arterial stiffness has not been fully clarified. We investigated the influence of hyperglycemia on arterial stiffness using the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), which is a new method for estimating arterial stiffness. MATERIALS AND METHODS CAVI values of 52 early-staged DM patients (duration <5 years, no… CONTINUE READING
