Acute hyperglycemia impairs flow-mediated dilatation through an increase in vascular oxidative stress: winter is coming for excess sugar consumption

Cindy Meziat, Jordan Loader, Cyril Reboul, Guillaume Walther


In two editorials recently published in the Journal of Thoracic Disease, Robert P. Hoffman and John David Horowitz et al. separately reviewed the interaction between acute hyperglycemia and vascular function (1,2) with a focus on the results of our meta-analysis published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (3). We thank the authors for their interest in our research and for their contribution to further understanding the effects of acute hyperglycemia on cardiovascular health.
