Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with early atherosclerosis and increased cardiovascular mortality. The relation between carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT), a marker of subclinical atherosclerosis, and left ventricular (LV) mass, an independent predictor of cardiovascular morbidity, has not been previously studied in type 1 DM. The Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study is a multicenter observational study designed to follow up the Diabetes Control… CONTINUE READING
