With over ten million diagnosed patients and another five million undiagnosed, diabetes mellitus and its complications-cardiovascular disease, nephropathy, neuropathy, and retinopathy-is a major public health problem that will assume epidemic proportions as the population grows older. In Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, Michael T. Johnstone, md, and Aristidis Veves, md, dsc, have assembled a panel of seasoned clinicians and expert scientists to comprehensively review both the clinical and scientific aspects of diabetic cardiovascular disease. The contributors thoroughly discuss the mechanisms and risk factors of diabetes in relation to hypertension, dyslipidemia, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, and congestive heart failure. Their review includes a full examination of the epidemiology, mechanisms, methods of assessment, and treatment of the disease at the macrovascular level, and a discussion of its microvascular effects, including retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and compromised microcirculation in the diabetic foot. Each chapter covers its topics in great detail and is accompanied by extensive references. Comprehensive and up-to-date, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease offers not only practicing physicians the day-to-day practical knowledge needed to treat patients effectively, but also clinical scientists a deeper understanding for developing novel therapies for this devastating illness
