Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is an important risk factor for future cardiovascular events. To prevent cardiovascular disease, lifestyle modification is the first-line approach to the management of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, whereas strict glycemic control is the first objective in type 1 diabetes. However, aggressive treatment to control atherogenic dyslipidemia, increased blood pressure, and hyperglycemia is needed when non pharmacologic approaches alone are ineffective or insufficient.
