Aims: DCCT showed that intensive type 1 diabetes management reduces complication incidence
but did not focus on other cardiovascular disease risk factors, whose control in type
1 diabetes has not been well-studied. We assessed trends in cardiovascular risk factors
in type 1 diabetes and attainment of concurrent American Diabetes Association (ADA)
guidelines/recommendations (for HbA1c, blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides)
for complication prevention.
