Cites a study conducted by physicians in the U.S. which found the problems of vascular access for hemodialysis in juvenile diabetics with end-stage renal disease. Investigation on the problems of vascular access in ten patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus; Common complications in various forms of vascular access in juvenile diabetics with the maintenance of hemodialysis; Conclusion by the researchers that insulin-dependent diabetics have more problems with fistulae than their non-diabetic counterparts.
