Abstract

This dissertation studies the connection between the glycation of proteins and type 1 diabetes-related complications, among which cardiovascular diseases. Several determinants of the glycation of proteins were related to cardiovascular diseases in type 1 diabetes. The main conclusion is that the glycation of proteins is a mechanism that can lead to complications in type 1 diabetes. With the observed connections the research creates perspectives for prevention or treatment of type 1 diabetes-related complications.
