Diabetes is also commonly associated with PVD. At least 20–30% of patients with PVD have diabetes [1–3] and it is the most common cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputation. More than 60% of these amputations occur in people with hyperglycemia. Diabetes duration [4] and poor control [5] increase the risk for peripheral vascular disease. It has been estimated that with every 1% increase in hemoglobin A1C, peripheral vascular disease risk increases by 28%. V. F. J. Freeby 28 Morbidity and Mortality in Patients with PVD and Diabetes Mellitus Patients with peripheral vascular disease are at high risk for procedural-related death and comorbid complications.

Its interaction with zinc releases it from the tetrahedral conformation and disulfide bonds then form between the two monomers. This disrupts the catalytic activities of eNOS, decreasing NO synthesis and increasing production of ROS. Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4), an important factor in eNOS function, is also targeted and interrupted by peroxynitrite [21]. Superoxide also inactivates the glycolytic enzyme glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate Reactive Oxygen Species ROS promotes atherosclerosis by blocking eNOS synthase, further increasing the production of other ROS, especially superoxide anion (O2−), in endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle cells [4].
