As expected, participants with MetS at baseline had a greater number of adverse risk factors than participants without MetS, including higher BMI, WHR, Fat%, insulin, HOMA-IR, HbAjc
, TC, CRP, SFA, VFA, and MetS defining parameters (Table 1, P < 0.05 for all parameters).
In patients with initially proper metabolic control, the use of personal insulin pumps has a beneficial effect on the earliest stages of atherosclerosis in the assessment of IMT and FMD, even despite lack of significant improvement in HbAjc
. Whether on the long-run CSII is superior to MDI to delay the occurrence of diabetes late complications remains to be explained in future trials.
