[IP] Some Diabetes Complications Unchanged in 30 Years

Some Diabetes Complications Unchanged in 30 Years
No change has been seen in the last three decades in the occurrence of some
serious complications of type 1 diabetes, such as heart disease and retina
damage, new research from a US-based study suggests.

"Doctors have long considered type 1 diabetes a small blood vessel problem,
so they have traditionally not focused on the potential large blood vessel
complications, such as cardiovascular disease," lead author Georgia
Pambianco, said in a statement. "However, our study suggests that doctors
and their patients need to pay more attention to factors that affect the
larger blood vessels, such as lipids and blood pressure."
