Diabetic Dyslipidemia

Part of the Current Clinical Practice book series (CCP)


The leading cause of death in the United States is coronary artery disease. The diabetic patient has a two- to fourfold increased likelihood of coronary disease with two-thirds of patients with diabetes succumbing to their macrovascular disease and double the risk of dying of a myocardial infarction.
