Abstract

Multiple and complex pathways promote the deleterious effects of hyperglycemia in diabetes, ultimately leading to micro- and macrovascular disease. Some of the known mechanisms in diabetic vascular disease may explain the initiation of the "metabolic memory", but fall short if long periods of time are involved.Vascular research has been prolific in the past in finding links between microvascular dysfunction and subsequent macrovascular disease. Thus, this text will extend the current discussion of the "metabolic memory" by including available data from vascular research.The hypothesis proposes that structural and functional changes in the microcirculation interact within the vascular continuum with larger arteries. This interaction may lead to subsequent upstream endothelial dysfunction, atherosclerosis and vascular complications ("Micro/Macro Interaction"). The underlying microvascular structural changes may be more long-term and possibly mediate the "metabolic memory".This hypothesis, that the "not-so new" interaction between micro-and macrovasculature may promote "metabolic memory" effects extends and unifies currently discussed theories.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 July 2017.
All research outputs
#7,154,138
of 11,483,620 outputs
Outputs from Cardiovascular Diabetology
#366
of 674 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#170,843
of 314,902 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cardiovascular Diabetology
#20
of 41 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,483,620 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 674 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.8. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 314,902 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 41 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
