Abstract

We sought to determine the attainment of targets for glycaemic control and vascular risk reduction in an Irish cohort of T1DM adults. Of 797 patients (53% male, mean age 40.3±14.8 years, HbA1c 8.5±1.6% (69.6±17.8mmolmol-1)), 15%, 68% and 62% achieved targets for HbA1c, blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, respectively.
