ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which aims to determine whether long-term intensive insulin therapy (IIT) reduces cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in patients with type 1 diabetes. 1441 patients between 13 to 40 years of age with type 1 diabetes were included in the study. Exclusion criteria were a history of CVD, hypertension or hypercholesterolemia. At mean 17 years, fewer patients in the IIT group had CVD events than did those in the conventional therapy group The study found that in patients with type 1 diabetes, long-term intensive insulin therapy reduced cardiovascular disease events.
