Table 2 Results of the ultrasonographic carotid study: carotid intima-media thickness and presence of carotid plaques

From: Type 2 diabetes-associated carotid plaque burden is increased in patients with retinopathy compared to those without retinopathy

  No retinopathy (n = 159) Retinopathy (n = 153) P value
