Description:

This report looks at Factors that increase the risk of developing cardiovascular heart disease (CHD) in diabetic patients. Diabetic patients, particularly those with type 2 diabetes or proteinuria, are at considerable risk of excessive morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and peripheral vascular disease leading to myocardial infarction, strokes, and amputations. Much effort must be given to reducing the risk factors that predispose to major atheromatous arterial disease. The many available measures add to the complexity of treating diabetic patients, especially those with type 2 diabetes.
