Diabetes mellitus is associated with a number of well-known, specific macro- and microvascular as well as neuropathic complications. The typical and specific association of microvascular and neuropathic complications with diabetes suggests a causal relationship with hyperglycemia or associated metabolic abnormalities. The results of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) as well as other recent studies have demonstrated that in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) the incidence of retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy can be reduced by intensive treatment. Strategies of intensified insulin therapy and the clinical importance of improved diabetic control are outlined in view of these studies.
