Peripheral Artery Tonometry in Children With Type 1 Diabetes and Obese Children
Recruitment status was Recruiting
Background: The reactive hyperemia-peripheral artery tonometry (RH-PAT) is a newly developed method for noninvasive endothelial function assessment.
Objective: The goal of this study is to determine whether a significant difference in RH-PAT score is present between adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in comparison with controls. We will also compare RH-PAT scores in obese adolescents versus controls.
