OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that an increased plasma concentration of sialic acid, a marker of the acute-phase response, is related to the presence of diabetic micro- and macrovascular complications in type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We investigated the relationship between plasma sialic acid concentration and nephropathy, retinopathy, neuropathy, and coronary heart disease (CHD) in a cross-sectional survey of 1,369 people with type 1 diabetes. Subjects were participants in… CONTINUE READING
