This review summarizes current knowledge of the adverse effects of type 1 diabetes mellitus on coagulation and fibrinolysis. Although further larger studies are needed to provide more definitive information, patients with type 1 diabetes exhibit aproinflammatory/procoagulant condition deriving from increased platelet adhesiveness, activation of the coagulation system, and decreased plasma fibrinolytic potential. This review also focuses on recent data from large prospective studies suggesting a strongassociation between procoagulant imbalance and development of chronic vascular complications in people with type 1 diabetes. It is likely that a greater appreciation of the intimate interactions between endothelial integrity, coagulation and fibrinolytic factors, and platelets in type 1 diabetes will provide a greater understanding of the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and microvascular complications such as nephropathy and retinopathy in this patient population.
