The article explores the potential underlying mechanisms that lead to increased incidence of stroke among patients with diabetes. It examines the impact of diabetes and hyperglycemia on stroke outcomes and discusses the current approaches to reduce stroke in the high-risk population. It says that the role played by metabolic syndrome, which is composed of cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, obesity and hyperlipidemia, in the development of cardiovascular disease has made it the target of studies regarding stroke.
