The article underscores the guidelines posed by the Canadian Diabetes Association regarding the management of cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes. It states that diabetes mellitus is identified as a chronic condition that requires complex management. Among the national organizations that have developed guidelines concerning the management of this disease include the National Institute of Clinical Excellence in Great Britain and the National Health and Medical Research Council in Australia. Relative to this, the Canadian Diabetes Association guidelines are modified every five years.
