Abstract

Objectives: Emerging evidence suggests that the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) may be a useful marker of inflammation and aortic stiffness. Markers of inflammation and aortic stiffness are both indicators of cardiovascular events. We, therefore, investigated whether the NLR is associated with aortic stiffness in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus.
