Abstract

A case of a 26-year-old patient with acute myocardial infarction and hypertension, hyperlipidaemia as well as type 1 diabetes from 18 years complicated by background retinopathy and nephropathy in the state of proteinuria is described. State of metabolic compensation of the diabetes was poor. The patient did not perform regular self-monitoring of glycaemia, smoked, and used oral contraception. Early diagnosis of vascular lesions in young persons with long-lasting of type 1 diabetes as well as the introduction of proper preventive and treatment methods may improve prognosis in these high-risk patients.
