Hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and cigarette smoking cause endothelial dysfunction. In fact, addition of risk factors as demonstrated by percentage increase in FRS has been shown to be linked with decreasing FMD. However, this relationship is only seen in low risk individuals [53] suggesting that endothelial function becomes impaired early on and the addition of more risk factors does not impair it further. The Cardiovascular Health Study showed that FMD was predictive of CV events in the elderly at a 5 years follow up but its addition to the predictive model containing traditional risk factors only minimally increased the AUC [54].
