Micro- and macrovascular diseases are frequent complications in patients with diabetes. Hypercoagulability may contribute to microvascular alterations. In this study, we investigated whether type 1 diabetes in children is associated with a hypercoagulable state by performing a global function test of coagulation - the thrombin generation assay. 75 patients with type 1 diabetes aged between 2 and 19years were compared to an age-matched healthy control group. Diabetes patients were divided into high-dose and low-dose insulin cohorts with a cut-off at 0.8Ukg-1d-1. Measurements were performed with platelet poor plasma using Calibrated Automated Thrombography and 1 pM or 5 pM tissue factor. Additionally, we quantified prothrombin fragments F1+2, thrombin-antithrombin complex, prothrombin, tissue factor pathway inhibitor, and antithrombin. Patients with type 1 diabetes exhibited a significantly shorter of lag time as well as decreased thrombin peak and endogenous thrombin potential compared to control subjects with 5 pM but not with 1 pM tissue factor. In high-dose insulin patients peak thrombin generation was higher and time to peak shorter than in low-dose patients. Thrombin-antithrombin complex was decreased in patients with type 1 diabetes, whereas prothrombin fragments F1+2 was comparable in both groups. Thrombin generation parameters did not correlate with parameters of metabolic control and the duration of diabetes. Taken together, we found only minor changes of thrombin generation in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes which - in contrast to type 2 diabetes - do not argue for a hypercoagulable state.
