Abstract

Coronary angiography was performed in 152 men and 163 women with diabetes mellitus (mean age 55 ± 8 years) because of chest pain. The mean hemoglobin A1c level was 6.66 ± 0.58% in 132 patients with 0-vessel coronary artery disease (CAD), 8.00 ± 0.84% in 40 patients with 1-vessel CAD, 8.83 ± 1.45% in 76 patients with 2-vessel CAD, and 10.40 ± 2.28% in 67 patients with 3- or 4-vessel CAD. There was a significant increasing trend of hemoglobin A1c levels over the increasing number of vessels with CAD (p <0.0001).
