    BACKGROUND: Endothelial dysfunction may play a
    pathophysiological role in the development of
    atherosclerosis in subjects with type 1 diabetes. We
    examined whether alterations in vascular endothelial
    function exist in children with type 1 diabetes and tested
    the hypothesis that endothelial dysfunction is associated
    with early structural atherosclerotic vascular changes in
    these children.

    CONCLUSIONS: Impaired FMD response is a common manifestation
    in children with type 1 diabetes and is associated with
    increased carotid artery IMT. These data suggest that
    endothelial dysfunction in children with type 1 diabetes may
    predispose them to the development of early atherosclerosis.
