Glycaemic variability

Exploring the clinical relevance of glycaemic variability as an indicator for cardiovascular disease.


Oscillating glucose more deleterious to endothelial function and oxidative stress than mean glucose
Treating and reducing glycaemic variability may help minimise the risk for cardiovascular disease

Activation of oxidative stress by acute glucose fluctuations compared with sustained chronic hyperglycaemia
