Authors: Mineoka Y, Ishii M, Hashimoto Y, Nakamura N, Fukui M Abstract Diabetes and malnutrition sometimes overlap. Little is known about the relationship between malnutrition and subclinical atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes. This cross-sectional study investigated this relationship in patients with type 2 diabetes. We evaluated the relationships between malnutrition assessed by controlling nutritional status (CONUT) score and subclinical atherosclerosis assessed by carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and carotid plaque scores in 461 consecutive patients with type 2 diabetes. Nutritional assessment...
