BACKGROUND While the adverse impact of diabetes on microvessels is well known, the risks of macroangiopathy are less well recognized. Here, we determine the differential risk and endothelial microparticle (EMP) profile of vascular complications in type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS Macroangiopathy was evaluated for cerebrovascular disease, coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease; microangiopathy was evaluated for retinopathy, nephropathy and peripheral neuropathy. Clinical and… CONTINUE READING
