Insulin-dependent diabetic (IDDM) subjects with microalbuminuria have an increased long-term risk of overt cardiovascular disease; however, the early exposure to cardiovascular risk factors may increase their predisposition to current silent myocardial ischaemia. The frequency of silent myocardial ischaemia detected by stress echocardiography and electrocardiography was significantly greater in 32 asymptomatic IDDM patients with microalbuminuria compared to 32 normoalbuminuric IDDM patients (25… CONTINUE READING
