Circadian and sex differences in carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity in young individuals and elderly with and without type 2 diabetes.

We tested the theory that aortic stiffness, a key cardiovascular risk factor, rises in the morning than in the evening in young, healthy adults between 18 and 80 years old, or with type 2 diabetes. Cf-PWV values were lower in the morning than in the evening in both groups at rest and lower in H18-30, but similar in the older groups during sympathetic activation. At rest, cf-PWV values in young women were lower than those in young men compared to young men; however, this trend was reversed in the older groups. These findings contradict the assertion that aortic stiffness rises in the morning relative to that in the evening in both rest and sympathetic activation conditions. Specifically, aortic stiffness in older women is higher than in men with diabetes during acute stress.
