dc.description.abstractThe prevalence of diabetes in the adult population in United States is approximately 10[percent] and is expected to rise. The myriad of complexities of this entity, both microvascular and macrovascular is anticipated to follow suit, adding to the morbidity and mortality. Diabetic muscle infarction (DMI) is one such incompletely understood complication of long-standing uncontrolled diabetes and seems to play a crucial role in risk stratification in those with microvascular involvement. DMI has shown to be a poor prognosticator of long-term survival, a grim reality given the mean age of presentation is only 43 years. Further investigation into improving this outlook and whether tighter glycemic control changes outcome would be of significant interest and benefit.eng
