From: Patients with type 1 diabetes show signs of vascular dysfunction in response to multiple high-fat meals

Figure 2

The effects of three consecutive high-fat meals on arterial stiffness. (A) The augmentation index was higher postprandially in patients with type 1 diabetes compared to controls (grey bars 12:00; p = 0.020 and 16:00; p = 0.028). In controls the arteries significantly relaxed during the day (p for trend 0.029). (B) Bracial and aortic systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), pulse pressure (PP) mmHg and heart rate (beats/min) during the research day.
