Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality both in Type 1 (insulin-dependent) and in Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) patients. Reduction of this excessive cardiovascular mortality rate is possible and represents the main aim of diabetes care. However, some aspects of cardiovascular disease may differ between diabetic and non-diabetic patients. In this article we provide an overview of diagnostic and treatment strategies in patients with diabetes and coronary heart disease. J Clin Basic Cardiol 1999; 2: 22-33.
