Both decrease estimated-glomerular-filtration-rate (eGFR) and high-ankle-brachial-index are associated with increased arterial stiffness and cardiovascular-risk in Europeans. South-Asians (a billion of them worldwide) have increased prevalence of severe kidney disease and diabetes but not hypertension and its association with cardiovascular-disease or anklebrachial- index <0.9 when compared with Europeans. The increase in systolic-ankle-pressures is greater with diabetes in South- Asians. The main outcome measures in the study were Doppler systolic pressures of the left and right posterior-tibial and dorsalis-pedis arteries in 711 South-Asians and 397 Europeans with or without GFRr.
