The excess risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus remains largely unexplained. Arterial stiffness, an early feature of diabetic vasculopathy involving several mechanisms, results in impaired arterial compliance, and has recently been proposed as a powerful independent predictor of cardiovascular disease. Increased arterial stiffness can contribute to the development and progression of hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy and dysfunction, and to decreased… CONTINUE READING
