Diabetes mellitus is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is most common (90% to 95% of persons with diabetes) and affects older adults, particularly those older than 50 years of age. An estimated 16 million Americans have type 2 diabetes, and up to 800000 new diagnoses are made each year (1, 2). Most adverse diabetes outcomes are a result of vascular complications, which are generally classified as microvascular (such as retinopathy… 
Pharmacologic Lipid-Lowering Therapy in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Background Paper for the American College of Physicians
TLDR
This paper focuses on the evidence behind the use of lipid-lowering agents in type 2 diabetes by evaluating the effects of lipid management in primary prevention and secondary prevention in randomized, controlled trials of drug therapy that included patients with diabetes.
Type II diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular risk factors: Current therapeutic approaches.
TLDR
Research data suggest that simple strategies combining thiazolidinediones and statins could have complementary effects on CVD risk-factor profiles in diabetes, alongside the ability to control glycemia.
Treating Diabetic Dyslipidemia: A Review of Practical Recommendations Based on Clinical Trials
TLDR
The high cardiovascular risk associated with diabetes mellitus warrants more aggressive lipid-lowering therapy, including reduction of LDL-C, in all patients with DM, and results of the Steno-2 study support HDL-C as a primary target of cardiovascular risk management in patients withDM.
Use of statins and gemfibrozil in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular risk factors attending adult day health care centers: an opportunity for pharmacists.
TLDR
This study demonstrates suboptimal treatment with statins in patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular risk factors, as demonstrated by the percentage of patients on at least moderate doses of statins.
Pharmacologic Treatment of Type 2 Diabetic Dyslipidemia
TLDR
Recent data suggest that lower dosages and newer formulations of niacin can be used safely in diabetic patients with good glycemic control, and lipid goals can be achieved in most patients with diabetes when all available products are considered and, if necessary, used in combination.
Treatment of lipids and type 2 diabetes
TLDR
Some of the key studies justifying the need for lipid reduction in patients with type 2 diabetes are reviewed and practical guidelines for management of the dyslipidemia are suggested.
Dyslipidemia Associated With Diabetes and Insulin Resistance Syndromes
TLDR
The accelerated atherosclerosis seen among patients with type 2 diabetes begins years to decades before the diagnosis of diabetes, which confers the same risk for CHD over a 10-yr period as a prior cardiovascular event.

Treatment of Hypertension in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Blood Pressure Goals, Choice of Agents, and Setting Priorities in Diabetes Care
TLDR
The goals of this paper are to review the literature to evaluate effects of management of hypertension on the complications of type 2 diabetes and to determine optimal blood pressure goals and choice of agents, to provide an evidence base to guide clinicians in setting hypertension treatment goals and priorities.

TLDR
An evidence-based approach is provided, integrating data from the major clinical trials that were designed as randomized prospective, long-term studies that had as a primary endpoint either progression of diabetic nephropathy or reduction in CV events to achieve lower blood pressure goals.
Diabetes, plasma insulin, and cardiovascular disease: subgroup analysis from the Department of Veterans Affairs high-density lipoprotein intervention trial (VA-HIT).
TLDR
In men with CHD and a low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, gemfibrozil use was associated with a reduction in major cardiovascular events in persons with diabetes and in nondiabetic subjects with a high fasting plasma insulin level.
The Effect of Intensive Treatment of Diabetes on the Development and Progression of Long‐Term Complications in Insulin‐Dependent Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
Intensive therapy effectively delays the onset and slows the progression of diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy in patients with IDDM.

TLDR
The effects of intensive blood-glucose control with either sulphonylurea or insulin and conventional treatment on the risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications in patients with type 2 diabetes in a randomised controlled trial were compared.
Cholesterol Lowering With Simvastatin Improves Prognosis of Diabetic Patients With Coronary Heart Disease: A subgroup analysis of the Scandinavian Simvastatin Survival Study (4S)
TLDR
It is suggested that cholesterol lowering with simvastatin improves the prognosis of diabetic patients with CHD and the absolute clinical benefit achieved by cholesterol lowering may be greater in diabetic than in nondiabetic patients withCHD because diabetic patients have a higher absolute risk of recurrent CHD events and other atherosclerotic events.
Coronary Heart Disease Incidence in NIDDM Patients In The Helsinki Heart Study
TLDR
Compared with similarly dyslipidemic nondiabetic subjects, patients with NIDDM are at markedly increased risk of CHD and this elevated risk can be somewhat reduced by gemfibrozil.
