In order to assess the potential role of lipoprotein(a) as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in diabetes mellitus, plasma concentrations were measured in a large group (n=500) of non-insulin-dependent (NIDDM, n=355) and insulin-dependent (IDDM, n=145) patients. Concentrations of lipoprotein (a) were compared in diabetic patients with (n=153) or without (347) documented vascular disease (ischaemic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease or macroangiopathy). They were significantly higher (p
