Abstract

This study examined the effects of fat- plus sucrose-rich meals on endothelium-dependent flow-mediated vasodilation in diabetic patients. Flow-mediated vasodilation in the postprandial state decreased significantly, and the decrease correlated inversely with the magnitude of postprandial hyperglycemia, suggesting that endothelial function in diabetic patients becomes impaired postprandially.
