Microangiopathy is Common in Submucosal Vessels of the Colon in Patients With Diabetes Mellitus.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The pathophysiology behind gastrointestinal dysmotility in diabetes mellitus is unknown. Both esophageal dysmotility and gastroparesis have been shown to be associated with retinopathy, suggesting that microangiopathy is important in the common etiology. The aim of the present study was to examine whether patients with diabetes exhibit microangiopathy in the colon, and if present, to correlate microangiopathy with the clinical picture.
