The article reports on the increase of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). It states that the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) for patients having overt DM rose by three to five times for women and two to three time for men equated to individuals without DM. Available evidence indicates that occult CAD is a usual finding in patient with asymptomatic DM that ranges from 20% in healthier subjects to >50% in patients having more complicated DM.
