Blood Viscosity, Lipid Profile, and Lipid Peroxidation in Type-1 Diabetic Patients With Good and Poor Glycemic Control

A September 2013 article published in the North American Journal of Medical Sciences showed that oxidative stress and blood viscosity may be useful markers of diabetes-related complications in patients with poorly controlled Type-1 diabetes.  Despite non-significant increases in blood viscosity and a small study size, these findings are especially important for both Type-1 and Type-2 diabetes.  Both of these conditions have been consistently shown to increase risk for cardiovascular diseases and have been linked to increased oxidative stress and blood viscosity.
