AIMS: Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is associated with cardiovascular (CV) disease and progression of CAC is an independent predictor of mortality. Type 1 diabetes is associated with increased CV risk, especially in persons with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN). This study aimed to examine whether short-term progression of CAC is increased in persons with type 1 diabetes compared to matched controls and if CAN increases risk of CAC progression.

METHODS: Fifty-three normoalbuminuric persons with long-term type 1 diabetes (20 with CAN) were matched in a 1:2 ratio with 106 controls without diabetes according to age, sex and baseline CAC. All were examined twice with cardiac computed tomography scans. Progression of CAC was defined as a value ≥2.5 between the square root-transformed values of follow-up and baseline CAC volume scores.

RESULTS: The participants were examined median (interquartile range) of 25 (23-27) months (type 1 diabetes) and 29 (25-33) months (controls) apart. In multivariable logistic regression, participants with type 1 diabetes had an odds ratio of 3.3 (95% CI 1.3-8.2, p = 0.01) for CAC progression. CAN did not increase progression of CAC (p = 0.64).

CONCLUSIONS: Progression of CAC was increased in well-treated, normoalbuminuric persons with type 1 diabetes compared to matched controls without diabetes, suggesting that type 1 diabetes is a risk factor for short-term progression. This finding could explain some of the increased morbidity and mortality observed in persons with type 1 diabetes, but it does not specifically explain the increased CV risk in persons with CAN.
