Study links diabetes to cerebral small-vessel disease

A study in Diabetes Care showed that type 1 diabetes patients were at an increased risk of having cerebral small-vessel disease and cerebral micro-bleeds, compared with those without diabetes. Finnish researchers evaluated data on 221 patients with and without diabetes and found that those with cerebral micro-bleeds were more likely to have albuminuria and higher systolic blood pressure and to use antihypertensive medication.
