Patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus are at high risk for vascular disorders such as hypertension, nephropathy, and retinopathy. The most common cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes is vascular disease. Despite ongoing research, the pathogenesis of vascular disease in diabetes remains unclear. In recent years, numerous investigators have examined the role of the endothelium-derived relaxing factor, nitric oxide, in the disease state of hypertension and its complications. We review the role of nitric oxide in the development of diabetes-related vascular disease and discuss findings suggesting that nitric oxide metabolism and vascular responsiveness to nitric oxide are altered in diabetes. Patients with diabetes may benefit from therapy that addresses this pathogenic deficiency.
