Cardiovascular and Cerebral Dysfunction
- 64 Downloads
Nearly 80% of deaths in diabetes are caused by cardiovascular events. Routine management of cardiovascular diseases in diabetes will not suffice. Unless the significance of various abnormalities of cardiovascular disorders is understood, proper treatment will leave many lacunae in care with suboptimal results. This chapter attempts to bring in that understanding, not to scare but to lead to rational understanding. Cerebral vascular or other cerebral disorders with diabetes have received much less attention in general, even among neurologists. This chapter takes a wider view of these disorders, some of which may look unconnected. It is done to alert the clinician about the odd elements which may surface at times and deal with it systematically. After all the clinical acumen should be directed more to such elements while the routine care, guidelines, and protocols are set.
