Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||Central and Peripheral 24h BP and the Association to Autonomic Neuropathy and Diabetic Nephropathy in Type 1 Diabetic Patients|
- Ambulatory blood pressure (AMBP) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The participants are seen once (cross-sectional) and we measure AMBP in order for us to investigate any association between AMBP and other parameters such as age, duration of diabetes, albuminuria status and other diabetic complications.
- Diabetic late complications [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The participants are only seen once and are at this visit, asked in regards to complications, and the electronic patient medical record is rewieved in regards to complications.
