Long Term Vascular Changes in Type 1 Diabetes (DM09)
The main purpose of this study is to investigate progression of late complications of diabetes during the last ten years in a well characterized cohort of type 1 diabetes with a long duration of the disease, and to define factors responsible for the progression of late complications.

Despite intensively research in the field of hyperglycaemia and coronary heart disease in type 1 diabetes it is still not known in detail how hyperglycaemia leads to damage of the vessels.
The aims of the present proposal are therefore two-fold:
- To study in detail the progression of atherosclerosis (and micro vascular complications) in a well characterized cohort of type 1 diabetes with a long duration of the disease. This project will be a continuation of the Oslo study, a cohort started in 1982, with the last follow-up study in 1999/2000.
- To define factors responsible for the progression of coronary heart disease (and micro vascular complications) in this cohort.
