Macrovascular complications such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular accidents are major causes of diabetes mellitus-related morbidity and mortality. However, it is difficult to diagnose such macrovascular complications before clinical symptoms are evident. In many previous studies, the measurement of carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) has been a useful, non-invasive method to detect early atherosclerotic vascular changes. Methods: We measured carotid IMT by using high resolution B-mode ultrasonography in 103 type 2 diabetes patients with and without macrovascular complications. At the same time, we analyzed the patients` characteristics including height, weight, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, duration of diabetes, and past history of hypertension and smoking. Laboratory parameters such as HbA1c, triglyceride, total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, apolipoprotein (A), apolipoprotein (B), Lp (a) and 24-hour urine microalbumin and protein were included in this study. Results: Age, blood pressure, glycosylated hemoglobin and diabetic nephropathy were significantly increased in type 2 diabetes patients with macrovascular complications. And type 2 diabetes patients with macrovascular complications showed significantly thicker maximal and mean carotid IMT than those without macrovascular complications. Maximal carotid IMT was an independent risk factor of macrovascular complication in type 2 diabetes patients, and was positively correlated with age, duration of diabetes, systolic blood pressure and LDL-cholesterol. Conclusion: The measurement of carotid IMT by using high resolution B-mode ultrasonography is a useful method for the early detection of macrovascular complications in type 2 diabetes patients.
