The screening and best treatment for coronary heart disease in diabetic patients is still a matter of debate. For this reason the main Italian scientific societies dealing with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases have tried to finalize a document providing shared recommendations based on the available evidence on: 1) how and who to screen for coronary heart disease, 2) methodologies for the characterization of existing coronary heart disease 3) evaluation of the optimal treatment of cardiovascular risk factors and 4) appropriate revascularization procedures. For each of these points, the levels of evidence and strength of recommendations used in the Italian Standard of Care were adopted.
