The article focuses on the macrovascular complications associated with diabetes. It is said that macrovascular disease is a condition that is both a complication of diabetes and is complicated by diabetes. Diabetes results to cardiovascular (CV) damage and is an independent risk factor of CV disease as it is related to the prevalence of hypertension. Coronary heart disease, cerbrovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease are the most significant complications of diabetes.
