Higher plasma levels linked to CV complications in type 1 diabetes

September 18, 2014

Cardiovascular complications are associated with higher plasma levels in patients with type 1 diabetes, according to a presenter at the 50th European Association for the Study of Diabetes Annual Meeting.

“Cardiovascular mortality is the leading cause of death in type 1 diabetic patients,” Stijn A. Peeters, MD, a PhD student in the CARIM School for Cardiovascular Diseases at Maastricht University, the Netherlands, said during his presentation. “We think extracellular matrix remodeling could contribute to this complication.”
