In humans, diabetic microangiopathy affects arterioles, capillaries and venules throughout the body. This fact signifies the unity of the vascular occurrences. The pathology of the microchannels functional or structural, has a variable dynamic natural history where localized abnormalities are commonly found at different stages of their development.
