  Peripheral neuropathy and the risk of cardiovascular events in type 2 diabetes mellitus
  PN is associated with increased risk for a first cardiovascular event among individuals with diabetes (Heart)
  Endothelial cell autoantibodies in predicting declining renal function, end-stage renal disease, or death in adult type 2 diabetic nephropathy
  These results suggest that anti-endothelial cell antibodies interact significantly with albuminuria in predicting the composite endpoint of death, ESRD, or substantial decline in renal function in older, adult type 2 diabetic nephropathy (Frontiers in Endocrinology)
  Quantification of the Glycemic Response to Microdoses of Subcutaneous Glucagon at Varying Insulin Levels
  EGP increases steeply with glucagon doses between 25 and 175 µg at lower insulin infusion rates. However, high insulin infusion rates prevent these doses of glucagon from significantly increasing glucose output and may reduce glucagon effectiveness in preventing hypoglycemia when used in the artificial pancreas (Diabetes Care)
  The control of blood pressure might be important in delaying progression of arterial aging in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
  We found that the variation of blood pressure was associated with the progression of vascular aging of the large- to middle-sized arteries in patients with type 2 DM. Therefore, control of blood pressure might be important in reducing arterial aging or PWV in patients with type 2 DM (Clinical Interventions in Aging)
  The prognosis of diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes since 1996–1998: the Skaraborg Diabetes Register
  Most patients with diabetes develop little retinopathy for the first 10 years after diagnosis. High HbA1c at baseline was associated with retinopathy and maculopathy during follow-up. Antihypertensive treatment, probably a proxy for regular controls and early detection of diabetes, was associated with less retinopathy (International Ophthalmology)
  Optical quality of the diabetic eye: a review
  This review aims to provide an overview of current knowledge about the effects of diabetes mellitus in these optical phenomena and its consequence on the visual quality of the diabetic patient (Eye)
  The predictive role of markers of Inflammation and endothelial dysfunction on the course of diabetic retinopathy in Type 1 Diabetes
  High levels of sE-selectin and PAI-1 are associated with the development of retinopathy in patients with uncomplicated type 1 diabetes (Diabetes and Its Complications)
  Diabetes Risk Among Overweight and Obese Metabolically Healthy Young Adults
  Healthy metabolic profile and the absence of diabetes risk factors do not protect young adults from incident diabetes associated with overweight and obesity (Diabetes Care)
  Hemoglobin A1c, comorbid conditions and all-cause mortality in older patients with diabetes: A retrospective 9-year cohort study
  In our patient population, HbA1c scores<6.4% have significantly higher all-cause mortality. CHF is a major determinant of all-cause mortality. Adults with comorbid CHF and high HbA1c scores have lower all-cause mortality (Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice)
  Sulfonylurea Use and Incident Cardiovascular Disease Among Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: Prospective Cohort Study Among Women
  Long-term use of sulfonylureas was associated with a significantly higher risk of developing CHD among women with diabetes (Diabetes Care)
  Association of metformin with lower atrial fibrillation risk among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a population-based dynamic cohort and in vitro studies
  Metformin use was associated with a decreased risk of AF in patients with type 2 DM who were not using other anti-diabetic medication, probably via attenuation of atrial cell tachycardia-induced myolysis and oxidative stress (Cardiovascular Diabetology)
