The aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of abnormal nocturnal blood pressure (BP) in patients with type 1 diabetes. The investigators wish to gain knowledge on the relation between central and peripheral 24 hour BP and a possible association to late complications in diabetes.
Ambulatory blood pressure (AMBP) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
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.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Diabetic late complications [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
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.
