ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study of the presence of moderate hyperhomocysteinemia, a risk factor for premature cardiovascular disease, its modifying vitamin factors (folates, vitamins B[sub12] and B[sub6]), and lipid risk factors in juvenile type 1 diabetes. Retrospective and prospective studies have demonstrated that hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for premature cardiovascular disease independent of other classic risk factors, such as smoking, hypercholesterolemia, arterial hypertension, and diabetes. Hyperhomocysteinemia was not detected in adolescents with type 1 diabetes, at least in the age range studied, and seems to have no predictive value for cardiovascular disease.
