Reference work entry


The emerging epidemic of obesity and diabetes has been recognized as a major public health problem. The cardiovascular system is particularly susceptible to the biologic perturbations caused by diabetes, and many patients may die from related complications. In terms of major cardiovascular events, coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients. This chapter reviews the clinical implications of the manifestations of diabetic heart disease and the impact of treatment on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity based on clinical trials.
