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.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Vascular Risk Progression in Normal and Diabetes Control Subjects

Further study details as provided by University of Nebraska:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To describe carotid intima media measurement change over 2 year period in normal individuals compared to individuals with well controlled diabetes [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: March 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Normal controls both men and women
Individuals with type 2 Diabetes with good control
Individuals with type 1 diabetes with good control

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.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Estimated GFR <60 (mL/min/1.73m2)
