University of Florida Identifier:
First received: August 12, 2005
Last updated: March 6, 2012
Last verified: March 2012

The purpose of this study is to determine if Atorvastatin can improve blood vessel stiffness and blood vessel function in children 10-18 years old with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Subjects will receive atorvastatin 20mg or placebo daily for 3 months and will then switch therapies for the next 3 months.

Hypothesis: Atorvastatin will improve blood vessel function by decreasing arterial stiffness and improving blood flow.
