DIABETES MELLITUS AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES
Keywords:diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, complications
The number of diagnosed diabetics is increasing with age. Failure to control the disease leads to serious complications. Acute complications include hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar hyperglycemic syndrome; while chronic ones include microvascular and macrovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases remain the most common cause of death of this population, especially endangered by coronary heart disease and stroke. Lifestyle modifications, rigorous control of diabetes but also possible concomitant diseases significantly extend the occurrence of complications and increase the quality of life of diabetics. We present diabetic patients with coronary heart disease, complaints, progress and management of these cases.
