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.
