BACKGROUND The goal of this study was to examine the effects of diabetes mellitus on the trend of mean arterial velocity (v(m)) in both middle cerebral arteries during head-up tilt (HUT). METHODS The study was performed in 20 patients, 9 females and 11 males (mean age 51 +/- 12 years) with an average 17-year history of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus type I or II and a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system confirmed by cardiocirculatory tests [Valsalva maneuver, deep breathing test… CONTINUE READING
