    Blood glucose and insulin concentrations have been reported to influence cerebral hemodynamics. We studied the relationship between actual blood glucose and insulin concentrations and resting cerebral blood flow velocity in the middle cerebral artery and cerebrovascular reserve capacity after acetazolamide stimulation. Thirty-six insulin-dependent diabetic patients in a state of good glycemic control were studied. Blood samples were taken for determination of glucose and insulin concentrations. Subsequently we measured resting cerebral blood flow velocities in supine position using transcranial Doppler, administered 1 g acetazolamide intravenously, and repeated the measurements after 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes. Cerebrovascular reserve was calculated as the maximal percent increase after acetazolamide stimulation. Multiple regression was used for statistical analysis.Blood glucose levels were not correlated with resting blood flow velocity (R = 0.21, p = 0.22) nor cerebrovascular reserve capacity (R = 0.17, p = 0.32). Similarly, no correlation was found between insulin concentrations, resting cerebral blood flow velocity (R = 0.24, p = 0.22) and cerebrovascular reserve (R = 0.26, p = 0.24). Studying patients with long-term (> 10 years) and short-term (
