Vascular complications (VC) are important clinical sequalae of diabetes mellitus (DM). The affected vessels can be macrovascular (cerebral, coronary, peripheral) or microvascular (retinal, renal, neural) in caliber. In a pilot project, we have analyzed VC in 174 Kuwaitis with NIDDM. We were interested in a systems analysis of VC and report such an analysis, showing prevalence of combinations of VC and profiles of affected patients.
