Long-term instability of fasting plasma glucose, a novel predictor of cardiovascular mortality in elderly patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus: the Verona Diabetes Study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We recently reported that long-term fasting plasma glucose (FPG) instability predicts all-cause mortality in elderly patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether glucose instability, as represented by the coefficient of variation of FPG concentrations (CV-FPG) measured during… (More)
