ABSTRACT
• Diabetics have a 2-4 times increased risk of suffering a cardiovascular event. • The most effective approach in reducing that risk is by addressing, in order of decreasing importance, blood pressure control, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia. • In a Lancet-published meta-analysis of trials involving more than 33,000 patients, intensive glucose control resulted in a 17% reduction in nonfatal MI and a 15% reduction in coronary heart disease but no significant differences in stroke or all-cause mortality.
