Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to look at the progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in normal control individuals and in patients with controlled diabetes.

Condition or disease
Diabetes Inflammation

Detailed Description:
Cardiovascular disease remains the greatest cause of mortality in people with diabetes mellitus. This observation study will evaluate non-traditional risk factors for their contributions to vascular disease progression as determined by carotid intima media thickness and history of vascular disease events over 1 year. This study requires annual checks of blood, urine, history, and carotid ultrasound for carotid intimal medical thickness.
