Cardiovascular Risk Profile in Caribbean Youth with Diabetes Mellitus

Issue: 
Pages: 
219–26
Synopsis: 
In this study, there was a high prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in the patients studied regardless of their diabetes type. While patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus were more obese and had higher blood pressure readings when compared with those with Type1 diabetes, their overall glucose control was better. Differences in lipid profile were no longer significant after adjusting for BMI.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To assess the effect of diabetes mellitus type on conventional and novel cardiovascular risk factors in patients, diagnosed with diabetes from two major referral hospitals in Jamaica, before age 25 years and with diabetes duration < 6 years.
