Several studies of adults have shown that both obesity and T2DM are independently associated with increased arterial stiffness. However, little is known about the relationship between arterial compliance and cardiovascular disease risk in children. We assessed whether large and small arterial compliance is impaired in obese and diabetic… CONTINUE READING
