UNLABELLED: Orthostatic hypotension (OH) has deleterious effects on patients' cardiovascular prognoses. The combination of increased age and diabetes adds to the risk of OH. The aim of the study was to describe the elderly diabetic population relative to the degree of hypertension, the occurrence of complications, medications and cognitive function. METHODS: In the Gerodiab study (a 5-year French multicentre, prospective, observational study), a total of 987 type 2 diabetic autonomous patients, aged 77±5 years, were recruited between June 2009 and July 2010...

Optimal glycemic control is well known to reduce effectively the risk of micro vascular complications both in type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. However the role of glycemic control in decreasing the risk of myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke, the leading causes of death in patients with diabetes, has been so far controversial. In this review, based on data recently reported from large interventional studies, we discuss the possible causal relationship between glycemia and cardiovascular outcomes in type 1 and type 2 diabetes...

OBJECTIVE: The relationship between urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and diabetic complications in NIDDM has not been studied in a large American population. The demonstrated relationship between increased UAE and the development of retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy in IDDM makes this an important issue to also be studied in NIDDM patients. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A large population study of 947 NIDDM patients living predominantly in a metropolitan area was undertaken...
