- In type 2 diabetes HbA1c, fibrinogen and HDL-c are interrelated only in CAD patients.
- Such correlations are independent of LDL-c, blood pressure and ongoing treatments.
- Clustering of high HbA1c, high fibrinogen and low HDL-c predict cardiovascular events.
- These 3 factors might exert an interwoven role on atherosclerosis in type 2 diabetes.
