Arterial elastic properties are altered with increasing age and in various disease states, including non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Whether young patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) have reduced arterial compliance before developing endothelial dysfunction or overt micro- and macrovascular disease is unclear.
